A simple programming game that allows editing of scripts while the game is still being run. The scripts control the AI of some combatants in a Quake III-style game.
The game can be used as a tool to get people interested in coding, or simply as a competitive game between different code.
The included "Basic Coder" is also a tool for non-programmers to create scripts. This will hopefully encourage more people to take up programming, whether as a career or hobby. Also, the tool can be used to understand some basic programming principals in a non-overwhelming way. :)
Some extensibility provided to create a simple sandbox environment. A "director" AI can be programmed to alter the dynamics of the game for a customizable experience. The "director" can also add custom entities that it would control.
Scripts are currently written in-game in C#, but any .NET language should be supported when developing with Visual Studio.
