C15253: Intro to Game Design in Splash 2022 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2022)
Ever wanted to make a mind-bending puzzle game, an awesome shooter, or a cute visual novel. In this class we walk you through the process of designing games, everything from choosing the genre to designing mechanics to making levels. At the end you get to (literally) sketch out your own game ideas using things you learn in class and maybe get some inspiration from your friends' ideas. In game design the only limit is your imagination (but a plan certainly helps ;))

C14080: Game Design and Development with Minecraft and Java in HSSP Summer 2020 (Jul. 11, 2020)
Learn the essentials of game design and apply that knowledge by creating Minecraft plugins (read: minigames like SkyBlock and other cool features) through the Java programming language! Discover how popular servers keep players hooked and learn programming skills needed to make sheeps explode on contact; the sky’s the limit! No knowledge of Minecraft plugin development required; just come with a copy of Minecraft Java Edition, basic Java programming skills, and creativity! NOTE: This is a very fast-paced class that will go over a lot of material fairly quickly. You will be expected to be able to work and communicate in small teams, and you will be creating basic Java plugins by the end of essentially every class. If this sounds like too much work, this class might not be for you. Otherwise, welcome and we look forward to hearing all the creative ideas you come up with and playing a lot of fun games together! We strongly encourage underrepresented groups (e.g. females) to apply!
