TUT VIDEO GAME (on SCRATCH!)

You like playing video games? I like playing video games.
You like computer programming? I love computer programming.

Oh, and I love books, so I decided to write a video game for my newest book, TUT: THE STORY OF MY IMMORTAL LIFE (Starscape/Tor, September 16, 2014)! And because I have kids of my own and see how much they love to learn about computer programming, I used the platform SCRATCH to write the game.
