In June 2018 FUZE Technologies Ltd will launch a new coding platform called FUZE for Nintendo Switch. FUZE is a programming environment very similar to the 8/16 bit computers from the 1980's. It is a modernised version of BASIC with similar syntax to C and Python but retains the incredible accessibility and ease of use of BASIC.
At FUZE we specialise in getting children, of all ages, coding using a real text based environment and not by using a drag and drop block type interface.
FUZE for Nintendo Switch allows users to create and share their own games but the main focus is to help them to learn to code. Therefore it is more of an educational platform but the results are always games related.
To support the release and to ensure we provide the best possible experience we intend to include as much sprite, art and audio content as possible so that a wide variety of game types and styles can be achieved.
We have been scouring the web for CC0 licensed content. (we are a very small team – just three on the dev, design and content and as such we have little budget)
In each case we will credit the author and include their logo (if permission is given). For example a thumbnail is used to present the author for any given content.
With all this in mind I wanted to let know what we are up to and to ask if you would like to be more deeply involved. For example if there is any content you would specifically like us to include that might not be able elsewhere or even if you wanted to create something exclusive for the release. We will of course purchase this through the relevant channels.
In return we would include accreditation across all available channels (application, manuals, website, press releases etc.).
We are likely to generate a lot of very positive interest which can only be a good thing for all involved.
If you are happy to discuss further please contact me at contact @ fuze.co.uk
