Love gaming but think your favourite games would be better if…? Have your own game ideas that you’d love to play for real? Learn the skills of game design and start making your own games- stop consuming and start creating!
We are very pleased to offer Ume Academy’s game design curriculum for the Unity game engine.
Ume Academy engages kids natural love of games while providing them the tools to express their own creativity. Design, discuss, collaborate, iterate, make, learn, play!
Psst- parents, don’t tell your kids: game design requires creative thinking, problem solving, technology, art, and empathy for your players- great life skills!
Skills that will be practiced:
- using software such as Unity (game engine), Krita (images), and Ocen Audio (for sound)
- applied design processes
- evaluating designs and iterating on ideas
Bonus: participants will have another two weeks of access to the Ume Academy platform from home!
Please note that the focus of this program is game design, with enough programming to make things work.
Format: 6 weekly, 1.5 hour sessions
Max participants: 6
