Westerns meet stealth (and a slingshot) in Honig Studios’ El Hijo, star of this issue’s front cover. We go in-depth to find out about the sneaky adventures of a six-year-old on a quest to find his mother. Elsewhere we uncover a brooding, bonkers narrative adventure in the shape of Chicken Police, and tackle one of gaming’s great adversaries: rats. Just why are they always the baddies? We’ve also got reviews for the likes of Sea of Solitude, SolSeraph, They Are Billions and more.
A guide on how to get into the exhilarating world of live coding
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
