Living at the intersection of technology and art, video game design is one of the most exciting, expanding, and far-reaching skills to learn in the modern age.Our Video Game Design Workshop teaches the craft of game design, giving you the skills needed to creatively bring your story or adventure to life. Our workshop begins with a templated digital design mini-project to acquaint campers with the available development tools. Next, campers form small teams to dig deep into the principles and practices of game design, starting with a game concept description; novel concepts are encouraged and supported through tabletop (paper-based) mock-ups.Each team brings its vision to a playable prototype, through a simulation of the process followed by professional game designers, using a variety of digital development tools and methods. Working collaboratively, every camper on the team has a role in creating the story, characters, player mechanics, environment, and other elements of their game.Campers will also think about how games reflect the values of the game developers who made them, and how Sci-Tech values come into play when we seriously consider the meaning of our games.There is a wide array of tools to work with, so even returning campers or experienced developers will be challenged to discover and grow their skillsets. While the software we use changes each year, the primary game engines used in last summer’s workshop included Scratch (great for a variety of 2D games), CoSpaces (for easy collaboration on block-coded 3D games), and BlocksmithXR (for the realism and flexibility of Unity but an easier learning-curve).Join us this summer and use your passion for play to create the games you’ve always wanted to see in the world!ABOUT SCI-TECHAt the Union for Reform Judaism’s 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, scientific inquiry meets fun!
