In this Virtual Game Design Camp, we turn your gamer into a game developer!
What Kids Learn in Virtual Game Design Camp
In this Virtual Video Game Design Camp, kids take their passion for video games to a new level developing their own playable video games. In this tech camp, kids design an array of arcade-style video games by applying key STEAM skills. They learn character development, environment creation, and innovative gameplay with GameMaker software.
Kids are provided access to a copy of the GameMaker software and a library of graphics and music files to install on their Windows computer to develop the video games they create in camp and create new ones after camp is over. Kids will be able to save the video games they design to play with friends and family.
