Video game design, also known as game development, is the process of designing the characters, gameplay, environment, and storyline for a video game. In the video game industry, game designers work in teams of game programmers, artists, building 3D models, level designers, and audio designers.
Course Description (Ages 7 – 11)
In this popular Minecraft camp, campers learn Minecraft level design while they learn to build adventure maps, and learn engineering with Redstone. Kids will even learn a touch of coding with command blocks in the game of Minecraft. This camp is the perfect blend of learning and fun for Minecraft lovers.
Kids will learn to hone their skills at game design and level design in this Minecraft camp while creating Redstone structures, custom maps, and adventures. Using MCEdit, students will create incredible buildings, cities, and worlds within Minecraft and tie them all together with mods, skins, characters, and stories. Once campers have mastered learning how to add maps and characters to the game, they will also learn how to install multiple mods and create a few of their own to customize the Minecraft world.
Minecraft accounts will be provided during the duration of camp for students who do not have one, though students who already own a Minecraft account may use their own.
