Background

Learning to code is an intimidating process, especially for those who feel like they don't have an affinity for STEM subjects. For my project, I am creating a game that will teach the basics of programming in Python in a way geared toward humanities (and especially literature) students. The game will emphasize the coding skills necessary for working with text while also building up understanding of the fundamentals of programming. Where most books, apps, and other resources on programming assume their audience is interested in math or the sciences, my game will embrace humanities students' skills and interests.
