Video Game Design: From Concept to Completion

We know you like to play video games—91 percent of teens do, so you’re not alone. But what about creating and developing them? Did you know that in 2013, the video game industry had more than $93 billion in sales—and continues to grow? That is a big number, and gaming is big business. This hands-on course, designed for those with little to no experience in game development, will show you what’s behind some of the games you play and will start you on a path to becoming a game developer. Work with experienced game designers as you take a game from idea to completion, learning what goes into making a video game from the ground up. Focus on planning your idea, designing and creating the artwork for your game, and learning the programming basics by creating your own game within the Unity cross-platform game development engine. During the week, there will be a site visit to a game development studio. You will leave the class with a functioning game containing your own artwork that is playable on the web, a computer, or a mobile device.
