Video Game Design for the Absolute Beginner

Friday, January 27 @ 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Do you love video games and wish you could make your own? Game design teaches math, art, logic, writing, and computer skills in the most exciting way imaginable! I will go over several free video game making programs that allow you to create, share, and sell games for computer, mobile device, Xbox, and Playstation. I will talk about some of the hardcore video game design systems, but this class will only cover the basics and provide a foundation for anyone that wants to go further in video game development. Anyone can learn how to make video games in this class even if you have never written code in your life.

Safety Training

Some of the tools in our space are dangerous and require basic safety training. This training is included in your membership. Classes are kept small so each student get a lot of personal attention, and each training session is themed for a certain set of tools – just take the sessions you need to get going. Contact us by email to schedule a training session.
