We've taken our popular Game Design workshop for schools and turned it into a single day taster workshop. You'll be using the popular Game Maker system to design a physics-based game from scratch. Using professional sound and graphics resources you'll be able to create an amazing looking game in just a single day. Find out about how to use the physics engine so your game's character can collide with other objects and be affected by gravity. You'll also be creating your own sprites (game images), sound effects and background music.
As with all Tech Camp courses you'll get to take home your creation as well as a wealth of other resources so you can continue your adventures at home. This includes a working version of Game Maker, sound and graphic resources and a collection of web links to find and create other great game resources.
