Ritual of Raven

Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ritual of Raven is a farming game like Stardew Valley but here you add programming code to the inhabitants of the farm to help them grow and harvest the plants. Similarly to Rabbids Coding, it's an intuitive and approachable way for beginners to learn to code. More than that though, it's merged with an engaging story and bright pixel art visuals to create an game that is just as much about playful entertaining as it is educational. It's great for children taking the first steps into programming.

You play a young witch, who discovers a magical book in an abandoned house that contains a recipe to bring back its owner after a spell has gone wrong. You set about collecting the ingredients you need by setting up a cosy farm, befriending the locals and growing plants. You give code to each resident, adding simple blocks, such as "Move to Position..." "Plow", or "Water", to create chains of actions that are then performed. You can also loop actions and experiment to find the best sequence of actions for maximum efficiency.

Along with farming, you talk to the other inhabitants of the forest around your farm, who can offer you helpful advice or a simple conversation. You unlock items to decorate your farmhouses in the retro, pixel art style of the game. Throughout, it's an experience that focuses on inclusivity and diversity within its cast of characters, and you meet people of different magical species, sexualities and races.

It blends the classic farming-simulation with simple coding elements to create a space where you can freely explore the basics of programming in a low-stakes and enjoyable environment.
