FUZE4 Nintendo Switch Lets You Learn How To Code Your Own Games This May
FUZE Technologies has announced that FUZE4 Nintendo Switch has suffered “a further slight delay,” and will now release on the portable home console in May.
The games programming application presents the chance for users to learn how to code, which, after a short apology, can be seen in action in the below video.
These demo clips show the more than 10,000 unique assets that have 30 pixel-artists, 3D model designers, and musicians have created.
There are examples of what genres you can create too, whether that be from retro vectors and pixelated aliens to modern day kart racers and atmospheric dungeon crawlers.
Anything is possible, resulting in an application that is accessible to absolute beginners but more than versatile enough for experienced programmers.
“In all honesty, we’re all a bit disappointed to have delayed further but there really was no other option,” explains FUZE Technologies managing director Jon Silvera. “May 31st is a comfortable date as we’re already in the final stages, no new features are being added just testing and adding as much tutorial and help content as we can.
“FUZE4 Nintendo Switch is special as there really is nothing else like it. We always knew we could come up with the goods but none of us realized quite how impressive the final release version would be. It’s fast, intuitive and very accessible.
“From a personal perspective, I could not be prouder. We’re a small team with limited resources. The team has worked tirelessly for almost two years. It’s been an incredible journey and one I hope will put the younger team members in very good stead for their lives ahead.
“Finally, Nintendo’s awesome Switch made it possible for us to realize the answer to the original question that began this journey. The question, could we recreate the accessible coding environment those of us who grew up in the 1970’s and 80’s was exposed to? The answer, after seven years of hard, but very enjoyable work, and thanks in no small part to Nintendo, is a resounding yes. Beyond our own expectations YES! Go code.”
FUZE4 Nintendo Switch will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on May 31st.
