Winter eLive Classes - 2D Game Design
View all 8 dates
Digital Dragon's weekly ONLINE class requires an Apple (MacOS), PC (Windows OS) or Chromebook. The use of a computer mouse, not a laptop trackpad, is strongly recommended. Classes will be held virtually, with a live instructor through the Zoom platform.
Do you dream of creating your own video game? This class will give young learners a balanced introduction to video game design and programming by making 3-4 simple games using the Scratch programming platform. You will learn to control characters through an environment based on rules of your own creation, and create your own characters and environments. Example projects include customized 2D arcade and side-scrolling games. Our all-new curriculum is perfect for beginners and more experienced gamers and storytellers alike.
