2D Video Game Design Series

The Video Game Design series students will begin by designing and developing a custom platformer video game playable on PCs, Macs and on the Web. After 2D VGD Introduction the students can progress to 2D VGD specialty such as advanced programming to beef up their game. Our progressive curriculum allows students to take as many specialties as they like in order to add new game features and learn many cool things along the way such as iPhone and Android publishing. Progression to Level 3 Specialties will be dependent on a students creativity and technical achievements.

If students are unsure what level suits them best you may request the instructor for a personalized assessment. It consists of a few short answerers and will depend on age and experience.
