In Computer Game Making Lab, participants will explore the foundations of video game design then plan and create their own multi-level video games!
Every video game must follow a basic story line which has five parts: setting, plot, characters, interactive objects and goal. Just like an interesting movie or a book, these five parts together give the story purpose. Video games allow users to experience and control that story!
Our video-gamers-in-training, learn about
