OvO: Planet Engineer is a learn-to-code game for kids ages 7-12. Players transform into OvO, an owl-like creature whose mission is to roam the galaxy searching for dying planets to bring them back to life using core coding concepts and robotics. The game is built in Unity3D for PC and uses procedural generation to create planetoid environments.
With years of experience helping Kids TV makers such as PBS KIDS extend their animated TV properties into the digital space, Two Moos/DEPT® decided it was about time we developed an educational game of our own!
Through whimsical explorative play, the game teaches kids to think like coders and engineers, helping to foster a coding mindset early in life. A valuable mindset both in and out of the classroom as STEM related careers are becoming increasingly essential.
Two Moos/DEPT® are proud to have won funding from the coveted Film Victoria’s Assigned Production Investment – Games program which supports high quality, diverse and engaging film, television and online content for Australian and International audiences. We'll use that funding to complete a vertical slice of this project, ie. a playable prototype of the core game elements.
