Camp Name: 1-Week Kids Game Design Camp – Online
Upon completion of the 1-Week summer game program, a graduation ceremony will be held that will include a showcase of the students’ work. Students leave the course with a small portfolio of projects including their own playable 2D game.
Game Design – Game types, platforms, player experience, prototyping and iteration.
Coding - Using Unity, students will create a 2D “Flappy Bird” style side-scroller (Unity is free for students).
Narrative Design – Concept & character development, object-oriented storytelling.
Art – Using art tools from industry, students create original 2D assets for their game (we will use art tools that are free for students).
Campers will leave the program with:
