INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTER GAME PROGRAMMING AND DESIGN

     

This course will introduce students to computer game programming and design using Game Maker Studio and Unity Pro 5.5 software. A step by step approach will be used to present the various aspects of creating original video games from concept to completion. Video games and simulations will be created that run on both Windows and Mac operating systems. Students will work with textures, sprites, dynamics and sounds to create 2D games. Functions, variables, conditional statements and logic controls will be used to program each game. The games will be compiled, tested and debugged before completion. Maya 2017, Photoshop CS5, Adobe Fireworks CS5 and Adobe Sound Booth CS5 software will be used in the game design process. Strong math and problem solving skills are required.
