Video Game Design Using Game Maker
This course will provide an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the world of video game design and development. Participants will learn key programming constructs using GameMaker software (a robust, yet easy-to-use game creation tool). In addition, students will learn to use software to create original graphics and sound engineering software to create and edit sounds for their games. By the end of the course, students will have created a wide variety of video games. Each class will celebrate their accomplishments regularly, by sharing games with their peers for feedback and enjoyment.
The video game creation process has something for everyone. Students will have the opportunity to work independently and in development teams, where everyone will contribute based on their interest and expertise.
