    Hi!

    Any plans about translating it to other languages? I could help with Spanish and Catalan! 🙂

    Best regards,

    • Maybe in the future! But not until the game is mostly completely developed!

    I purchased the Kickstarter a few months back but now can’t recall how I paid for it and which email I used. Is there a way that you can find my account/payment?

  3. Can I play in first person so I can pseudo VR with a headset. I’m doing a tech demo with the rift and kinect.

    • I don’t think 1st person is available yet, but that’s an awesome idea!

  4. Hello,
    I’m working on a tech demo and I’d like to be able to play in a first person perspective so I can use a VR headset. I would also like to set up a kinect for motion tracking to be the triggers for spells. IE; Stomping your foot would cause a rift in the ground in game.
    Any chance of first person mode coming soon?

  5. Hello,

    I’ve recently fell into the discovery of this amazing concept of not only a game but a learning device for everyone. I was hoping there would be a way to get in contact with anyone in charge of possibly the Business or Marketing aspect of Code Spells. Thank you!
