Welcome to the Introductory Game Design Summer Program for middle school students. We spent a full week playing games AND creating games. The idea was to explore how video games are created and then shift to making our own video games with Gamestar Mechanic. There were challenges for the young gamers to accomplish and there were visitors from the gaming industry. Mostly, though, there were games to be played.
