Students will learn how to program and make a Quest videogame using Kodu Game Lab by Microsoft. Kodu Game Lab is a visual game program that allows anyone, even those without experience, to create 3D games. Through designing and creating their own games, students become the inventor of their very own playable video game under direction from a fictitious client. This time the client wants an adventure Quest game! Students will work in pairs to create this game in which they can collaborate and strategize with their friends, as developers do in real-world environments. Through creating this genre, students will be introduced to programming and logic skills by creating three dimensional maps, environments, unique game features, enemies and boss challenges. This class will enable students to program characters and objects, build 3D worlds, introduce key elements of game design and give plenty of hands on time so that they can be confident using Kodu Game Lab as they progress. No previous game programming experience is needed!
