As a part of the design, students needed to work in pairs and come up with a concept that linked to education and create all of their original art for the game. Students used Scratch to create their games and many used Piskel App to create sprites and even some backgrounds.
Games will be playable next week and we will be having a mini Game Con so that students can experience each other's creations.
Ben got his start in 2D animation and graphics and began programming games after teaching himself. His game, Hungry Munchers, is available on the App Store and he is currently working on a game that should be available within the next year.
He shared a lot of tips on how to get started with developing games and students enjoyed the time he spent working with them on their games.
