Children learn about game design, its history, and different types of games and then they actually program their own video game in this day long adventure in learning. Children (ages 8-16) start with basic commands and, in a step-by-step progression, the games come to life. They will also learn about different game types, and the process of game design. Campers chose which video game creation software they will work with. Game choices include: "Gamebuilder Video Game Creation- the Arcade Style Game" using Gamemaker. In this game each level of the game is programmed on a single screen (like Asteroids, Centipede, or PacMan). Or students can chose Video Game Creation: The Platform Style Game (also Gamemaker): an introductory platform style game where the game's character walks jumps and progresses along a scrolling screen encountering other objects and enemies along the way (Like MarioorSonic). We also offer two Kodu game creation choices. Kodu is a unique video game creation program developed by Microsoft. It is fun and easy to learn. Children have a blast building their own worlds and then adding the characters who interact, do battle, race, or whatever the child envisions. Kodu game creation camps include the Go Cart Style Game and the Adventure Game. In the Go Cart Style Game children create a game where characters race a clock in one level to fill a factory and then in the next level race carts like in Mario Kart. In the Adventure Style game, children create a first person maze game. ALL CAMPERS RECEIVE A T-SHIRT, COMPLETION TROPHY, AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DOWNLOAD AND PLAY THEIR COMPLETED GAMES.
