Get on board and learn the fundamentals of both designing games and building a playful experience. We will uncover several approaches to creating games so that you’ll be capable of building a foundation for your own unique game ideas and projects.
During the first week we’ll discuss what “play” is and take a brief look at the history of ancient gaming and the mechanics that govern play in both tactile and digital gaming. We will start by examining tactile approaches to game design. You will be asked to think about the construction of board games and other mediums utilized in a game space. By Wednesday of the first week you will have created a handcrafted game using found objects as a design tool. You will then explore the Unreal Development Kit (UDK), a professional AAA gaming engine with which popular games like Gears of War, Arkham Asylum, and Borderlands were created.
Throughout the second week we will develop a 3D platform using the built-in assets provided in UDK. You will learn about “modding” existing code and how to create custom animations which you will use to develop platform traps and other game play elements. By the end of the second week you will have created a fully playable basic game level that you can take home and share with friends and family.
