Junior 2D Game Development

This course is located at the Microsoft Store in Bellevue

Games are fun to play, but they’re even more fun to make!  If you want to learn how games are designed and developed, this workshop is for you.  DigiPen Institute of Technology offers a one week summer workshop in Junior 2D Game Development at the Microsoft Store in Bellevue.

Students in the Junior 2D Game Development workshop learn to apply concepts of math, physics, art, computer science, and music through hands-on activities that culminate in a variety of digital and non-digital games. Students will learn that game design is much more than a pastime —it is a challenging and rewarding field that rewards passion, creativity, and hard work!

Students will learn:
  • The game design process
  • Game design mechanics
