Event Details

Introduction

We successfully delivered a half term course aimed at Year 8 and 9 boys at Royal Grammar School . Boys use the simple drag and drop interface to create a 2D computer game with two playable characters, collision detections, enemy Artificial Intelligence, music, sound effects, a scoring system, extra levels, a title screen, win and lose screens and bonus power ups.  Some from this have gone onto design quite sophisiticated gaming products in GameMaker and have started to use the Gamemaker Scripting Language enabling to program more advanced games. 

The workshops we are running tonight will provide practical insight into how to use BYOB and GameMaker.

16:00 - 16:10 Welcome

16:10 - 17:30 Introduction to BYOB (Extension to Scratch) - how to use create custom blocks, use variables and programming techniques to produce an effective gaming product.

17:30 - 19:00 Introduction to GameMaker - how to build your first game - using custom made variables, changing levels and rooms, adding characters to a room - how the game terminates. 

19:00 Close - Discussion of resources and future training.
