Game Development Curriculum 1

  • make a board game
  • make a digital game (with kodu)
    Game Development Curriculum 2

portal2

2 weeks
"how do design elements of portal2 make the game playable?
how can iterative design, play testing, and revision create test chambers for players to solve problems?"

  • the level creation was intuitive.

MIT app inventor

2 weeks @ 90/min/day * 5 days/week
scratch-like interface

  • unity

Unity - may have to pay through the nose for licenses in classrooms

"when dev'ing a 3d game, what elements are needed to make it playable?
what are the visual functions?
how do the characters ..."

Sketchup

as a 3d model creation tool

course 2 required course 1 or algebra 2
goal as "Computer Science Big Ideas"

Unity Curriculum (screen casts available!)
3D main menu

  • simple starting point, animations > interactions
  • managing changing scenes
    Planning
  • thinking about location, mood (music and setting), game type, backstory
    Interactions
  • onCollision -> triggers dialogue

"Urban Ninja"

runs through a bunch of platforms on trees, dodging blades.

  • available assets really drove the created game

"Mr Splinter"

based on a single game concept "rag doll physics"

Start with AngryBots. Play, then modify things like sound effects ( gun shoot noise -> chicken sound lol )
Build terrain, add a first person controller, add trees etc.

Teams of 1 or 2, b/c parallelizing and merging is hard

Pain Points:

things didnt save correctly
importing assets

Positive:

having tutorial videos for the kids to review

TSE:
quick to start, then begin customizing.
dont overwhelm with tools and tool bars.
provide game basics from the start: some simple environment, collision, physics, score controller
add fire, explosions, common particle effects
NO I.T. SETUP
no fees for schools
