Advanced Game Design

KIDS AGES 7–12

Master your skills and rule the arcade!
This camp takes to the next level students already familiar with the basics of designing and developing 2D games. Building directly on the foundations of our Game Design Camp, students will create art, program gameplay, and engage in collaborative critical analysis to explore complex design and development concepts and processes. This knowledge culminates in the creation of unique and personalized interactive game experiences.

WHO IS THIS FOR? 
Campers who completed the Game Design camp and/or have created 2D games using Game Maker Studio

STUDENTS WILL

• Explore advanced programming concepts like loops and data structures
• Develop and fine-tune algorithms to give life to the artificial intelligence in a game
• Balance difficulty and game mechanics to make a game unique
• Develop a cohesive narrative to heighten the gaming experience
• Play test games to provide effective peer feedback and enhance game quality

FINAL PROJECT

Advanced interactive arcade-style games crafted with complex game events, collision behaviors, and enriched artificial intelligence

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

Full Sail University reserves the right to cancel or postpone any camp due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. If a camp is cancelled by the university, registrants will be notified immediately and registration fee refunds will be processed.

All cancellations and withdrawals are subject to a $100 cancellation fee per camp, per child.  No refunds will be given after a camp begins.

CAN I CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE WEEK?

You can join us for as many weeks as you like during the summer, and even choose the same theme. Since the themes are tailored to your child's interests you'll have a whole new experience.

 

DO YOU PROVIDE LUNCH AND SNACKS?

Students need to bring their own lunch and a preferred snack. We’ll provide water and some healthy snacks.

ARE THERE EARLY DROP OFF and LATE PICKUP TIMES?

Early drop off is from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Late pick up is available until 6:00 p.m. 

 
 

IF THE WEEK I WANT IS FULL, IS THERE A WAITING LIST?

For those classes that are already full, we will maintain a waiting list. To get into the waiting list, you must complete an online application indicating the session in which you are interested. No fee or credit card information is required at this point. As spaces become available, the first name in the waiting list will be called to offer the space. 

How are refunds processed?

If you need to cancel or withdraw from a camp, please notify our office as soon as possible, either by phone or in writing (mail or email). A cancellation fee will be applied. No refunds will be given after a camp begins. 

 

Can my CHILD take the same Summer Camp more than once? 

Yes. Each camp has different roles and we adapt to the interests of the child within the project.

HOW DO DISCOUNTS WORK?

Discounts will be applied after checkout when you enroll more than one child at the same time.
