DIY Gamer Kit

Learn to code through play

Using our free online coding platform, kids learn how to make over 15 retro games by following step-by-step tutorials.

Easy to follow manual

The Gamer Kit only takes 15 minutes to build. You'll just need a 9 volt battery!

Build your own games

After getting comfortable with how the Gamer works, kids can code their own original games from scratch.

Gaming for the maker generation

The Gamer Kit is the perfect way for kids who love gaming to learn to make and code their own games. The Arduino programming itself is done in one of the most popular programming languages – C++ – allowing kids to write and upload custom programs to their Gamer Kit.

Easy to follow step-by-step tutorials on how to use the Arduino IDE software platform are available on Club Make, making it easy for kids to grasp these concepts.

What is the Arcade Coder?

The Arcade Coder is a 12” x 12” board with 144 multi-coloured LED buttons that are all fully programmable and controllable, allowing kids to design and code their own games. Plus, the Arcade Coder supports up to 4 players, making it perfect for family game night!

What is the Gamer kit?

With the Gamer kit, kids build and code their own handheld gaming device.

What is the recommended age?

The recommended age for the kits is between 6 and 11+, though we think they are both great projects for anyone interested in gaming.

Do the kits include batteries?

The Arcade Coder does come with the battery already in the kit.

The Gamer kit will require a single 9V battery to use it hands-free. Alternatively, it can be powered by the included USB cable!

What do you learn with these kits?

These kits are ideal for kids who love gaming as they teach them block-based coding (Arcade Coder) and arduino (Gamer kit) to build and learn how to code their own retro games. Both kits strengthen their logic and problem-solving skills along with providing an introduction to game design and game mechanics.

How do I learn to code it?

Gamer Kit – Young makers will be taught how to use the Arduino software platform by following easy step-by-step projects over on Club Make.

Arcade Coder – Kids will learn block-based coding, game design and how game mechanics work via the iOS Games Studio app. To easily find the app, please type “Tech Will Save Us” in the App Store search bar.
