The game can be used as a tool to get people interested in coding, or simply as a competitive game between different code.

There is also a "Basic Coder" provided for those new to programming - it'll hopefully provide a way for non-programmers to learn the basics of programming. Or they can just use it to make scripts to play the game.

Some extensibility provided to create a simple sandbox environment. A "director" AI can be programmed to alter the dynamics of the game for a customizable experience. The "director" can also add custom entities that it would control. 

Scripts are currently written in-game in C#, but any .NET language should be supported when using Visual Studio.
