SKILL LEVEL: Open to all
CONCEPT: Teens, do you have what it takes to create your own video game? If so, this workshop is for you! Learn everything you need to design and build your own 3-D video game. Master the key technical and creative components of video game design. This includes level design and function, the creation of 3-D characters, lighting, sound effects, programming as well as game maps, basic designs and concept art.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students work with 3-D modeling techniques, Adobe Photoshop, Unreal Engine 4 and use Modo 3-D (Luxology). Game engine processes are covered in depth.
ACTIVITIES: We work in teams using Unreal Engine 4 to create a series of game worlds and Modo 3-D (Luxology) to create original game content. Students learn how to script events like moving objects such as doors, platforms and characters. We use existing assets provided by Epic (maker of Unreal) and create immersive real-time game environments.
