Game Design 

TEENS AGES 13–17

Craft your own awesome 2D arcade game
Game Design and Game Engineering go hand-in-hand when it comes to developing a video game. However, each focused field of game development requires a particular set of skills and knowledge. Games have changed dramatically over the past 20 years as the industry exploded with new technology. Although it has grown by leaps and bounds, classic arcade-style games have remained a dominant fixture among developers. Why? Because there is so much that can be learned from their design. Arcade games traditionally showcase tight controls, layered mechanics that are easy to grasp but difficult to master, intriguing use of music, and effective narrative. In this camp, you will learn the effective principles of Design through the creation of classic-styled arcade games.

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.
