If you are interested in video games, come to celebrate science Indiana to learn more about how games are made.
Andy Harris teaches computer science and game programming at IUPUI, and is the author of multiple books on game development and computer programming. He will make multiple presentations on how to make video games throughout the day. These talks do not expect any previous knowledge of computer programming or game development, and are appropriate for students and families.
Topics will include
- Making a choose-your-own adventure game
- Building a 2D arcade game in your web browser
- Creating a basic 3D game from scratch
All demonstrations will use free tools, and will be interactive sessions – building a game in real time with participant input. We will also provide links and resources for all the technologies we will be using.
If you want to try your hand at game development, stop by the IUPUI Computer Science booth all day long, where we will have computers set up for you to build your own game using the Scratch environment from MIT. We will have coaches available to walk you through the process of making your own game even if you’ve never done it before.
At the booth, you can also talk to Andy and his students about how to get started in computer programming, computer science, and game development.
We’re looking forward to seeing you there, and seeing what games you make!
