Game Development for Beginners

Buy ticket

Course Description

We’re going to build a 2D-game that is reminiscent of classic arcade action titles. The game you make will see you control a spaceship in the midst of war, shooting down asteroids and aliens to save the day and get the highest score. Once we have the core systems running there will be plenty of ways that you can shape the project to make it your own.

You’ll get to learn several different programming techniques and the basics of game development using JavaScript and Phaser.IO. The skills you learn will not only be useful in game development, but anywhere you can use JavaScript.

You’ll get to strengthen core programming skills while working with prototypes/objects, manipulating (game) data and designing logical code. We’ll work using industry techniques such as pair programming and GitHub and at the end of the week you’ll get to share what you’ve made with friends via GitHub Pages.

What you will learn

Who is this for
