The first 6 forty minute sessions will cover the introductory course (Ramp Up), where students will embark on an epic “Behind the Scenes” journey through different popular game genres! First, they’ll learn how to navigate and manipulate objects in 3D space. Each week after that, they’ll explore the fundamental design concepts that go into making each game genre function, as well as review the basics of programming using various professional programs to get them ready to immerse in making their own games.
The next 12 forty minute sessions will cover the various game genres that CBA chooses to start off their learning.
