Today we are kicking things off with a short interview with Dominik Boesl from the AntMe! Team.
AntMe! is a free-to-use, exciting serious game that helps learners to playfully and effortlessly learn the essentials of object oriented programming. By commanding your own colony of ants using C# or VB you help your ants to master many thrilling challenges: collecting sugar and apples, defending the ant hive or outnumbering the ants' natural enemies - the bugs!
All started in 2007, when Tom and Wolfgang invented the game. Since then AntMe! has come a long way and is with its more than 2.5 million downloads one of the worlds most educational games. Together with Dominik (who is responsible for the scientific and educational work) and Patric, the four guys drive the project in their spare time.
AntMe! 2.0 is currently in development and will bring a lot of new features (like a story mode), new levels and additional programming paradigms. Oh yeah, global expansion is also on the docket. To fund the development, the AntMe! team is running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
