Why learn about Game Production?

Technology is a powerful tool that can be used to change the world!

In this collaborative experience, learners work together to build a video game that addresses a social or environmental issue, and works towards change. Learners will explore the game industry by experiencing what it’s like to work on different project teams, within a variety of roles. As a group, we will track through the game development process together – from pre-production to post.

After brainstorming a game idea, and creating a collective Game Design Document (GDD), learners will work in smaller teams to complete assignments using a variety of tools, programs, and languages. Each team of learners will collaborate on 2 of 3 game production elements, including game-building, audio, and/or artworks.
