Game Design Workshop
Instructor Stacey Schofield
Meets Tuesdays 4:30 - 6:00 pm
Are you curious about games? Want to learn to make your own game? Join this ongoing workshop! You'll learn a lot about game design, from how to tell a story to how to create your own characters. We'll be using free software* that works with Windows and Macs, so you can continue building your game at home.
We start everyone with tutorials to learn the basics:
Elements of good games
Sprites, Objects, Rooms
Backgrounds and Sounds
Meters and Scoring
Interactivity: Choices and Control, Feedback
After you've learned the basics, keep coming to the workshop to develop your own original game. You'll enjoy the support of your Game Maker coach Stacey and the fun of seeing others develop games.
*Some of the tools we expect to use in the workshop are Game Maker, Pixlr for image editing, and GarageBand for sound recording and effects.
Froad is an example of a popular game made using Game Maker that you can find in Apple's App Store.
This workshop is for ages 9-15.
