About Course

In this updated version of our ever-popular game design course, students will plan, configure, and design a retro-style video game with Bloxels. The Bloxels platform is simple enough for younger students (no coding skills are required), but powerful enough to keep older students interested and engaged. Students control every aspect of their game, from story, to layout, to pixel-art design. And best of all, students will be proud to share their game creations with family and friends at the end of camp!

What Will You Learn?

  • How to map out and plan a fun retro-style video game.
  • How to configure your game's characters, enemies, bosses, and overall story.
  • How to design every element of your game using pixel art and pixel animation.
  • How to share your game with the world in the Bloxels Arcade.
