Game Making at Home - A Project Based Approach

None
This session will give you a hands on start to making your own online video game and learning coding at the same time. The workshop will be a 60 minute stepping stone which you can use to complete your own platform game in your own time. We will use two tools in this workshop to make our games. Firstly the code playground glitch.com (using the javascript tool phaser). Secondly arcade.makecode.com a block based approach to making games with some game mechanics blocks baked in. Whatever tool you use - the principle is the same. Jump in - remix a game make it your own, then add different game design patterns. In the process we develop our own knowledge of coding concepts and completing a design project. Free materials will be available for you to complete the game projectin your own time with your family or with a coding club.
