When you launch Enu for the first time, it will bring you through a simple tutorial.
Move with the
D keys, or with the left stick of your game
controller. Look around with the mouse, trackpad, or right stick of your game
Close help or code windows with
ESC on your keyboard or
B on your
controller. You can also move without closing the window by using your
controller, or by holding down left
alt/option (⌥) on your keyboard.
Jumping and Flying
Jump with the
space bar, or the
A button on your game controller.
Fly by jumping twice quickly. Fly upwards by holding the jump button, and
downwards by holding crouch (
C on the keyboard or
B on a game controller).
Return to the ground by pressing the
jump button twice.
Flying is a great way to see things from a better angle and to zip around your world at high speed. It also lets you move through objects and blocks, so if you ever get yourself stuck you can probably fly your way out.
Tools are selected from the
Tool Bar at the bottom of the screen.
Change tools with the keyboard keys

Enu currently has 8 tools. Tool
1 on the left is the
Code tool. It can
program almost anything in Enu, and will be explained in more detail later.
8 on the right is the
Place Bot tool. Use it to fill your world with
friendly robots. Tools
7 are the
brown colored blocks.
Bots are NPCs in Enu, and can be programmed to explore, change their
appearance, or offer information.
They can be placed with the
left mouse button or the
R1 gamepad trigger.
We control Enu using Nim, a powerful programming language that's useful for a wide variety of tasks. Almost everything in Enu can be coded with Nim.
Code tool selected, you can code anything you've created by clicking
on it with the
left mouse button, or
R1 on the controller
We control bots with simple commands like
turn. Here's some
example code to get a
Bot through the course in Enu's tutorial:
Run your code by pressing left
alt/option (⌥). Keep left
alt/option (⌥) held
down to move around while you're coding. Flying is a great way to get yourself
into position to see what's happening, so try double jumping to get a better
