Like movie making, game design involves a lot of complicated processes, from programming the environment and character abilities to inventing the levels and point systems. These parts of game design and more will be covered in this 10 week course, using the game design software GameMaker. Your teen will have the chance to work in a small group setting to discover more about the fascinating world of gaming. Participants walk away with both a GameMaker and an executable version of their game.
