Gameeky lets young learners and educators create and explore cooperative games and learning experiences.

More specifically:

  • Play and explore games with friends.
  • Create new games without writing any code.
  • Tell stories through these games.
  • Nurture artistic skills by designing game objects and creatures.
  • Grasp the basics of programming using Python in a LOGO-like experience.
  • Mature programming skills by extending games with Python plugins.

Gameeky is a learning tool in the shape of a game engine. Therefore, its primary goal is to provide a better learning experience for programming, arts and other STEAM-related skills. Read more about this project rationale here.

Gameeky is built completely on GNOME technologies.
