Coding to Survive - Kuato Studios launches Hakitzu

I am delighted to say that our good friends at Kuato Studios, a pioneer in learning technology, have justt released Hakitzu, the first mobile strategy game that teaches JavaScript coding for kids. Code is becoming the essential communication tool of this age. There will be one million more computer science jobs than computer science students in 2020. As Mark Zuckerberg says, "there just aren't enough people who are trained and have these skills today." Too right! It will be fascinating to follow Kuato Studios on their own journey as their new projects come to fruition.

  • Hakitzu is a turn-based strategy game where kids battle other players' robots using JavaScript, one of the world's most popular programming languages.
  • Hakitzu is available free on iPad 2, 3, 4 and iPad Mini, and is the first iOS game to combine compelling gameplay and JavaScript coding. Every four weeks, the Studio will release updates with features and functionality informed by feedback.
  • Hakitzu is the first in a series of products that will challenge the way children learn. Kuato is committed to empowering young people with the skills and understanding they will need to succeed in their world.

On the occasion of the launch, Frank Meehan, founder and CEO, Kuato Studios said

"Code is the essential tool for our age, yet traditional teaching methods haven't 'broken through' in helping learners master coding skills. We listened to kids who said they wanted more than the flat, text-based interfaces of today -- and built Hakitzu for them. The key to making learning fun for kids today is to make it social, exciting, challenging and graphically rich."

David Miller, chief education architect, Kuato Studios added
"Learning to code unlocks a whole new sphere of creativity for young people. It's a universal language that challenges the mind while developing confidence and real-world skills. Hakitzu offers kids a wonderful learning-by-doing opportunity; they get to interact with code in a fun and interactive environment."


Kuato Studios is a learning company building fun and interactive products that inspire kids to learn the new skills of the future. Kuato Studios was founded in 2012 by the creators and investors behind Siri, to disrupt, innovate and lead the education market, and is working on integrating the latest cutting edge technology, like next generation conversation AI from SRI International, into a smart tutoring platform. Beginning in March 2013 with the release of Hakitzu, a game that teaches coding skills and problem solving, Kuato Studios will release a suite of learning products that enhance and support learning in many curriculum areas.
