SaskInteractive is proud to present ‘Game on! Video Game Design Camp.’ This week long camp is open to youth ages 12-16 who are looking to learn how to design a video game.
Students will get hands-on experience building a video game using software that is built for users new to this process. By using this kind of software, students will be able to focus on being creative and telling a story, all through the medium of video games!
Some of the things we’ll cover…
- Basic coding and mechanics of games
- Storyboarding, sketching, and prototyping the game design process
- Designing and constructing a game
The final day will feature a showcase of the games where friends and family are invited to come see what students have created, including playing the games!
Game On! is also eligible for Creative Kids funding. To learn more about that and to get all the details on Game On!, visit our full website page.
Spaces are limited so get your tickets today!
