Students in Game Design will have the opportunity to work collaboratively in pairs to create a video game using Kodu Game Lab themed around a road trip traveling across America. Our class is going to learn how to create a racing game based off games like Mario Kart and Star Wars pod racing! Students will get to design their own race tracks on paper and apply it in the game. We will learn how to program characters to move, boost and enable power ups and other gadgets to get their player to the finish line first! Students will build their race course with the terrain tools; add roadways, bridges and paths. We will learn how to utilize timers and scoreboards and program enemy ‘bots. Our Game Design class will go over how to make tunnels and place obstacles to overcome and ultimately win the game. No previous experience needed!
