Event description

Description

Over the years, video game design has been iterated on time and time again, but the classics remain so for a reason. The independent game scene has even capitalized on imitating the aesthetic and feel of our retro favorites! Come play a collection of retro and indie stand-outs, and discuss the design elements and themes that link them together.

Educational Takeaways

  • Students will expand their critical and analytical thinking skills as we draw parallels between design elements and themes of video games from the past and present.
  • Students will build on their creative thinking skills as they propose ideas for a new video game, or create new levels for an existing game.
  • Students will gain an understanding of "media literacy", and how we can think deeply about entertainment.
