This five-day course gives students hands-on experience with the art and craft of making video games using the Unity technology platform. Students learn the fundamentals of game design and development by building several smaller games throughout the week, culminating in original final projects created in small teams. The purpose of this course is to prepare students to create their own interactive video games, either as a hobby or as a possible future career. Throughout the week, we will develop several small games from various genres, learning about different aspects of Unity3D and game development along the way. Rounding out the technical aspects of the course, we discuss core topics related to the art of game design. Preparing for a job in the games industry is also covered.
