Beginner students will learn the basics/fundamentals of Game Making. Starting out with a brick breaker style game, kids learn how to create sprites and objects. Then they code those objects to bring the game to life. Once we have the basics down they evolve their game with power ups and multiple levels of increasing difficulty.
Intermediate students will make an RPG based game. They will take sprites further giving them animation and a sense of 3 dimensionality. Students create multiple rooms that the character can go through with increasing difficulty resulting in a final boss you have to defeat to win their game. Along the way kids create collectable items, locked doors that require a special action to unlock, and enemies that are out to get you. We work together to try and bring as much of the kids imagination into the game.
