2D Game Design
In this class students will utilize Platinum Arts Sandbox to develop 2D linear based levels similar to
classic Mario & Sonic Games. Children utilize problem solving skills, simple mathematics, and team
feedback in order to create a challenging, but rewarding game. Students will first draw, and plan out their levels on paper, similar to an architect, then create their environment using 3D modeling tools within the software.
Students will learn to create and customize items, such as jumppads, teleporters, enemies, and more. As they advance their skills they will utilize command lines to change world properties such as, speed, gravity, & movement. By the last class students will have a fully functional level and will receive a link to download the software and student levels. This class is great for new or returning students as the material is different from our other Game Design classes.
