First Look at "Make Rockman" - Learn to Program Your Own Rockman Games!


Via Artec's Twitter account, we have our first look at the "Rockman x Programming" project, which is officially titled "Make Rockman: The World's Greatest Programming". All the details after the break!

 



Make Rockman lets you control Rockman with a controller that you assemble! The package includes software that teaches basic programing and a beginner's guidebook by educational company Gakken to show you how to code your very own video games.

Make Rockman will be available to pre-order next Monday at 11:00 JST on the Japanese-based crowdfunding website Makuake. It is currently exclusive to Japan.

Here are two sample pages from the guidebook, featuring an example of the programming logic:





Make Rockman uses "Scratch", a block-based visual programming language and an ArtecRobo 2.0 kit for the controller which you can see below.



That's all the info for now ! Come back Monday, September 7th for the final details!

  4. That is so awesome. I wonder if you can reconfigure the controller, it seems like it's meant to be modular, like Legos

    1. Did they actually steal it or did they approach the person who made it and work with him?
