ADVENTURE GAME DESIGN

AGES 7 - 12

CAMP DESCRIPTION

Anyone can play a game, but it takes special knowledge and drive to create them. In this camp, students explore the fundamentals of designing and developing multidimensional video games and develop an understanding of what it takes to build a game from the ground up. Students will use GameMaker Studio 2 to create a top-down adventure game complete with custom sprite art, programmed behaviors and reactions, and fine-tuned gameplay mechanics. They will learn to streamline the game development process as they build, playtest and iterate their games, incorporating player rewards and challenges to balance gameplay along the way. Upon completion, students will better understand the work that goes into the games they play and the complex decision-making process that helps to make these games fun.
