Design thinking, game design, presentation skills
Have you ever had an idea for a game you’ve always wanted to design? Are you a board game fan who wants to take a stab at creating your very own game concept? Or do you want to take a peek behind the scenes at what makes a fun game?
Our five-day Young Game Designers Bootcamp will help you do just that!
Join us this summer to play some of our favorite strategy games before learning how to analyze and critique a game. You’ll learn the basics of game design, key business trends in the game industry and go through three design stages as you develop your own game concept – creating your own characters, game world and rules – before you face the ultimate test – pitching your game to your peers!
Students will go through the entire product design cycle from inspiration to ideation, then create a business and marketing strategy for their game, developing creativity, design thinking and entrepreneurship skills.
