After 2 years of prototyping 8 games, I've started work on Grace Hopper: Bug Rescue. Based around a core 2d puzzle maze mechanic, Grace Hopper will challenge you to rescue your friend who are trapped in a large computer in the 1950s. Rescue your friends, learn about early computer science and Grace Hoppers life.
The hope for this game is for it to be both fun and entertaining as a puzzle game, and also an interesting educational game. We want to allow the player to discover educational content at their own pace without distracting from the core gameplay.
Grace Hopper: Bug Rescue should release in 2021 for all good portable and desktop platforms.
