Game Code is a Coding for Kids application enabling children and teenagers to develop more complex and responsible use of the video games and to look at the video games they play more critically by discovering and experimenting the creation of video games. Game Code teaches them key programming skills and notion by making them create their own video game step by step (initiation version.) or freely (sandbox version). The App allow them to manipulate code-blocks, modify or write code lines in Java Script, in order to set up their universe and rules, program the setting of their characters, their behaviours, etc. Specific media-education animations are integrated in the creation process, raising awareness of such issues as violence, addiction, etc. Kids are also invited to discover what VideoGame industry is really about and what opportunities could be there for them in a « Culture Code » video.Game Code has been launched in November 2015 and is freely available online.
