Design, identify, and improve game mechanics, explore narratives, and playtest examples and other students work.

In this course, students get a chance to make 2D Games using Scratch and Processing. Students will get accustomed to using variables, conditionals, and loops. They will also learn how to take advantage of coordinate systems and create code to simulate basic physics like gravity and collisions. Making use of events, they will create games, animations, stories, and experiences.

Students will get a chance to design, identify, and improve game mechanics, explore narratives, and playtest examples and other students work. By giving and getting strong, helpful feedback, students can iterate on their works and become better designers in the process.
