FUZE4 Nintendo Switch, the new ambitions and ingenious upcoming project by FUZE Technologies, is bringing the video game coder to your bedroom. The idea is to let every owner of the Switch console get the chance to create and share their own apps and games for Nintendo seems revolutionary, but it is actually a product of decades of experience. Mr. Nolan Bushnell, the founder of the legendary Atari and the current CEO in Stealth Mode, is proof number one for this, and in his own words:

“FUZE4 Nintendo Switch is a great way to introduce young people to the world of coding – it’s going to be really cool to see what comes out of it” – Nolan Bushnell, Founder of Atari

FUZE Technologies Ltd proudly made the announcement with the FUZE4 Nintendo Switch release date set for August 30, in less than two weeks. It is a user friendly coding platform made for Switch that was designed and developed by experienced gamers, veteran programmers, and artists that are deep into the gaming world for decades. The goal, according to the ambitions claims, was to make an environment that will suit both absolute beginners and also veteran programmers and allow the creation of top class games and apps. The managing director of the project, Mr. Jon Silvera, said:

“After a number of delays and a rigorous testing process we’re thrilled to have received the final Nintendo stamp of approval. Now you can make your own games on Nintendo Switch in the comfort of your own bedroom!” – Jon Silvera

FUZE4 is aiming for a comprehensive and easy way to pick up approach, with a high skill cap sort to say, according to the press release. There will be no limits to the kinds of games one might attempt at developing, not in genre or in any other aspect. The tool will include a code and map editor, media browser, image editor, and it will allow ambitious users to share their work. Also, it will allow joint efforts and enable collaboration on a single project by multiple developers. The ability to code, as it is called, is currently considered one of the main skills sought after in the workforce, and thus this platform is expected to have a major impact on society. The founder of Games Workshop and the Director of Sumo Group plc., Mr. Ian Livingstone CBE, added:

“FUZE4 Nintendo Switch represents a fantastic opportunity to help address the digital skills gap. Teaching coding from a gaming perspective is sure to enthuse, inspire and motivate young people and provide them with a valuable life skill, imperative to the future digital landscape.” – Ian Livingstone

Making games is a fun way to learn important digital skills that employers desperately seek. This is how coding should be introduced and we hope this will have a significant impact.”
