What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Turning the game into something that is fun and accessible to everyone interested in programming requires a lot of feedback from all different kinds of players. Early access allows me to get that.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will release out of early access in a few months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There won't be any more major content updates anymore. The game is very close to it's release state and the difference will mainly be more fixes and quality of life features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“There is a simple python-like programming language, a code editor with code autocomplete and code coloring features, a drone and a farm that can be controlled through code, a research tree allowing you to unlock new commands and plants, an inventory system and 8 unique plant/animal types that each provide a unique farming challenge and lots of optimization possibilites.
There is also a way to automate an entire playthrough of the game and a leaderboard for the fastest automated runs.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price may go up slightly at release. It isn't decided yet.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“There is a discord server for discussing improvements and new features. I love hearing new ideas for the game.”

About This Game

Program a drone using a simple python-like language to fully automate various farming tasks that would otherwise be very grindy. Feel the satisfaction of simply pressing "execute" and watching your drone do all the hard work.

Farming earns you resources which can be spent to unlock new technology.
Here's what the same program looks like after a few speed upgrades:

Unlike most programming games the game isn't divided into distinct levels that you have to complete but features a continuous progression.

Programming is done in a simple language similar to python. The beginning of the game is designed to teach you all the basic programming concepts that you need and is very beginner friendly by unlocking and explaining them one by one.
If you already have programming experience you should be able to play through the early game very quickly and get to the more complex late game tasks that should still be a fun challenge even for experienced programmers.
