COMPUTER GAME DESIGN
The Computer Game Design program of the Future Kings is a collaborative effort with the Mason Game and Technology Academy of George Mason University. Future Kings in the Computer Game Design concentration learn many of the core concepts and principles for creating computer games. Students use the “Unity” development suite to develop their games. Participants learn to create working characters that can move and interact with their world. They bring their characters to life inside a game engine by developing an understanding of interactive lighting, character controllers, animation blending, and more. Problem solving, critical thinking, entrepreneurship, effective communication and collaboration skills are acquired by active learning projects. The computer game design program includes projects that are designed for students to share, show, and play for their family and friends. Whatever their experience level, motivated students are led and challenged by experienced instructors who encourage participants to discover and explore their innovative ideas and concepts.
