Kickstarter MIA: Code Hero's $170k Worth of Silence

Amanda French writes: "Code Hero was an educational game idea by Primer Labs meant to teach players how to code javascript. Its Kickstarter campaign ran from December 2011 to February 2012 for a total of 60 days. It raised over $170k. Alex Peake, the founder of Primer Labs, rallied followers to "make indie game crowdfunding history" with them, and break the $200k mark. They referred to backers as "The Code Hero Army" and challenged them to get their campaign on the front page of Reddit. The energy surrounding the project was practically feverish, as there were even talks of an MMO expansion. Unity CEO David Helgason even contributed $1,337 in support of Code Hero."
