Game Design (Platformer)
In this camp you design, develop, test and publish your own multi level Platform game, using a tightly-integrated (engine to editor), easy to use, game engine and industry standard photo-editing software.
You will be introduced to level design and development in an easy to understand, step by step, fun to learn method. You apply the mechanics of level design and game mapping (using locales, stages or missions), architectural visualization, game graphics, animation and principles of game physics, math and logic in your game concept.
Following the work flow of professional studios, you will work on your individual project on your own and sometimes in teams. At the end of the camp you carry copies of your work home. Your game is showcased for trial at the Design Expo.
Inspiration: In this camp you are inspired by titles such as Donkey Kong, Super Mario Brothers, Centipede, PacMan.
