ChipWits is a game for all ages about coding friendly robots with an icon-based language. It features competition, puzzles, engaging stories, and tinkering for fun.
I’m Mark Roth, and I’m here with Doug Sharp, the co-creator of the classic geek 1980s computer game, ChipWits. We’re thrilled to announce that we’re rebooting this game so that we can modernize it and bring it to a new generation of fans!
We’ve got big plans. The game has been reimplemented on the Unity platform and we’re aiming to release it on Steam later this year. The new version features all of the original eight missions as well as new open environments, challenging puzzles, online competitions and leaderboards and even a tutorial mode to teach you the game (no more paging through manuals). There are new OPs and ARGs, new items and environments, and fun missions that will engage pro coders and kids alike!
Our first mission is to meet you, the members of our community.
Please take the opportunity to introduce yourself in the comments. Which version of the 1980s computer game ChipWits have you played? If none at all, how did you learn about the game? What are your suggestions for how we can best modernize the game and make it relevant to a new generation of fans?
We’re looking forward to hearing your stories and ideas!
