This project was initially appeared as an undergraduate thesis of Arapidis Christos and Mpimpitsos Michail, both students of the Department of Informatics, Alexander Technological Institute of Thessaloniki, Greece, under the supervision of Dr. Paliokas Ioannis. This project was engineered by Lite-C language in GameStudio, version A8 (Conitec Datensysteme GmbH). 3D models were designed with SketchUp 7.0 (Google) and machinima videos were developed with iClone 3.2, 3DExchange and CrazyTalk 5 (Reallusion Inc). 3DExchange was used to transfer 3D models from SketchUp to iClone. 2D graphics were processed with PhotoShop (Adobe Systems Inc) and terragen (Planetside Software).
Dr. Paliokas Ioannis had the idea of creating a 3D LOGO environment for early programming education but never found the time to complete it alone. Until two promising students contacted him asking for a thesis project proposal. One year later a first version of a LOGO like environment was real. After the completion of their studies, Christos and Michail promised to continue working on this project in order to have a robust application with all typical features of a Serious Game application.
The second version, released through this website on 16, November, 2010, was totally different. Although game philoshopy was the same, the application was equipped with a lot of extra features.
Initial EvaluationThe evaluation of Alpha version was made by prof. Kekkeris Gerasimos along with a team of 3 experts from the Department of Elementary Education, Democritus University of Thrace, Alexandroupolis, Greece.
