Take your game design skills to the next level by creating and animating your own character sprites, objects and backgrounds. Start with a name, develop the character's personality, signature moves, special powers and a story line. Finish with a fully animated character to be used in your very own game. Students do not need any prior experience in game design, animation, or sketching. Student created games will be available on a password protected Black Rocket website to share with friends and family. Games are only compatible on PC computers; MAC versions can be created after the program for $15 conversion fee. Students will work in pairs or teams for most of the program. Returning students can create more advanced projects that build on previous years.
