Much thanks to Andrew Hiltz (Mr. Hiltz), who without this project would not be possible. Consider that this project is not extra-curricular. The entire game design has be performed by his grade 3 class directly within the schools as a part of the school curriculum! Amazing!

Also thanks to Brilliant Labs for making this all happen!


That is all!
