MacStories’ John Vorhees on a Kickstarter project to develop a programming/design curriculum for girls (well, everyone, really):
…the reward that’s most interesting is a programming starter pack for backers who pledge just $25. The starter pack includes character sprites and other game elements for building Marshmallow Run in Scratch.
Em and I spent part of last year following a Pixelnest Studio tutorial to build a simple shmup in Unity. I’m hopeful Marshmallow Run gets fully backed, because I’d love to try out the starter pack with Em.
