CodeCombat was founded in February, 2013 by George Saines, Scott Erickson, and Nick Winter, who had previously developed the language-learning application Skritter. In 2014, the company received backing from the seed stage venture capital firm Y Combinator. According to CodeCombat, its products are free, and the company plans to make money from recruiting bonuses by referring skilled players to software companies. However, CodeCombat has introduced a monthly paid subscription that gives access to additional game content.
