We'll be spending a lot of time with the online game builder called Gamestar Mechanic, which has you playing games in order to learn how to build your own game. You "earn" developer tools by playing various activities.
Once you get to the point of developing your own games, you can then publish and share them within the Gamestar community of other students who are also creating games.
