game-designThe Video Game Industry makes more than $10 Billion a year and continues to grow! Michigan State University is a national leader in the area of game design, with programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level in the Department of Media and Information.

The Video Game Design Camp teaches students the basics of game design and development. Throughout the week, students are engaged in the game design process, from the initial game ideation, storyboarding, and pitching to the iterative development process of prototyping, playtesting and balancing. Students learn the process, tasks, and roles involved in game development, including programmer, artist, designer and producer, while building their very own 3D video game.

Software: Unity3D, Photoshop, Blender, Audacity

Prerequisite: No prior knowledge is required.

The Advanced Video Game Design Camp builds on the basic foundations of the first camp to bring the design process to a whole new level (game pun intended). Students will learn the ins and outs of 3D level design and build levels for their own games. They must take the Video Game Design Camp prior to taking the Advanced Video Game Design Camp.

Software: Unity3D, Photoshop, Blender, Audacity

Prerequisite: Students must take our Video Game Design Camp before taking the Advanced Video Game Design Camp. Students can take the Video Game Design Camp either the week before or in a previous summer. Students who have attended the middle school section of Video Game Design Camp must take the first week of the high school Video Game Design Camp before being eligible to enroll in the high school Advanced Video Game Design Camp because the program curriculum, introduction to software, and gaming concepts taught are substantially different.
