Coding tool FUZE4 coming to Switch this year to help you make games

Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. As well as digging out news and directing all hands to the feature riggings, Chris also finds time to consume all things speedrun and can even understand 70% of what a "half A-press" is.

Previously, Chris was a mercenary for many of the net's biggest game sites, helping their readers understand the convoluted world of digital sports. This culminated in a nomination for esports journalist of the year, and an intense love for the sound of gold dropping out of a dead lane creep.

You can get in touch with Chris to talk about work or the $6million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter. Which is a lot easier now that there's a link here.

It doesn't seem that hard, don't see what all the FUZE is about.

FUZE4 Nintendo Switch will be coming to the handheld console later this year to teach you some text-based coding to build simple games.

The FUZE programming language is a fairly simple and easy to learn way of getting into game coding but with some decently complex capabilities.

FUZE Technologies, the UK-based company that created the language says their tool will be available for inquisitive Switch players in Q2 2018 and will retail “at less then £30 ($40)”.

The types of games FUZE4 will help you to code include 2D platformers, racing games, RTS and RPGs, puzzlers, shmups and beat-em-ups.

There are thousands of included graphical and audio assets, but you can always make your own as well as additional packs purchasable through the Nintendo e-Shop.

If you’ve wanted to take a first step into learning about the ins and outs of game-making then this could be a great educational tool and the price is definitely better than a full-blown course of lessons.
