In this course, students will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to create their own video games. Students will research and analyze game style choices as they critique the ethics of game design, including how choices affect gameplay, mood, and audience. Students will then learn and explore coding concepts and terminology, including how to code in C# and the game software, Unity. As the course progresses, students will also have the opportunity to create music and other audio for game integration, explore two and three-dimensional virtual design concepts and develop character and backstory. By the end of the course, students will be able to play and share their own video games.
