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 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 to complete assignments using a variety of tools, programs, and languages. Each learner will explore 2 of 3 game production elements, including game-building, audio, and/or artworks creation.

At the end of the experience, learners will share their individual projects to reveal a series of video game levels that they can share with family and friends. They’ll also leave with a better understanding of how their favourite games came to be, and how they can incorporate coding into their existing interests and skills.
