Scaredy Ship is a games produced by the Kids Make Games project, a collaboration between Brilliant Labs and Xona Games. It was developed by a grade 11 student, directly in Drumlin Heights Consolidated Shool, using the Brilliant Labs' MakerSpace, as a part of the school curriculum. Furthermore, the technology used is the same technology Xona Games uses to developer their Xbox and PlayStation games.
Here is footage of the game. Mostly this is a capture of the student developer testing his own game.
