> Coming Soon To Kickstarter

Squalr Inc. Sept 10th 2018

On September 13th, Squalr Inc. will launch a kickstarter to fund its first video game named Squally.

Squally is a 2D multi-genre game that teaches video game hacking -- WITHOUT boring lessons, lectures, nor the need for prior experience. Instead, Squally teaches hacking through fun engaging puzzles where learning is a by-product.

This is not crappy education software masquerading as a game. Entertainment and education are equally important, and this game won't disappoint.

There is no expectation of prior computer science knowledge, a 12 year old should be able to complete the main storyline in this game. For the more hardcore players, there will be more challenging side content to enrich their existing knowledge. Topics such as data types, data structures, bin/dec/hex, and x86 assembly are gradually introduced through puzzles and gameplay. All of these topics are fundamental to every piece of software running on your computer today. These skills are critical to understanding how software actually works and incredibly applicable to careers in Reverse Engineering and Software Security which are in higher demand today than ever before.
