We’re coming to the end of our first session and things could not be better! The response we have had to our first session has been amazing! Our students have literally ran through the mall to come to class! Our Beginner students have really taken to the program and are looking forward to moving to the advanced classes and our PODSter students and I have worked together to figure out how to implement features they want in their games. As the instructor, I love to see this enthusiasm in students!
We still have some seats available for our upcoming October and November sessions, but they are filling up fast! Register today!
Things are brewing at PODS Game Design! Our arcade is up and running and has already seen several families come through to try out our games! Kids have asked quite a bit about playing Minecraft on our computers. For those of you wondering, fear not! It’s coming very soon!
We also have a Halloween Party coming up at the end of October! On Halloween, the Moorhead Center Mall is hosting a Haunted Mall! Not only that, but PODS Game Design will be open from 3:00 – 7:00 for a social and showcase! We want area game developers to showcase their works and connect with our students. Also, the PODSter class topic of the month is Developing Deep and Dark Dungeons, so students of that class will be able to showcase their dungeons to the public. Costumes welcome!
We are open! That’s right, our Arcade is open at the Moorhead Center Mall! Please check out our Arcade page for more information! We will continuously rotate our machines and offerings, so check back frequently!
Not only is our arcade open, but we are also gearing up for our first session that starts on Saturday, September 12th! We still have a few seats left in each section! We are excited for our inaugural class this weekend!
We are also planning an event for Halloween to wrap up our upcoming October session! Stay tuned for more!
In big news, we are lowering our age requirement so students age 9 can enroll. This will take effect for our October session. If you know anyone that is interested, send them our way!
We are fast approaching September 12th, which as you may know, is the date of our first class! We truly have come along way. We now have a permanent location to call home in the Moorhead Center Mall. This will serve as our primary classroom.
We’re also launching an arcade in our space! To start, our arcade will boast two TVs and a rotation of systems and games. From the original Nintendo to the Sega Genesis to the Playstation to the GameCube, we will have tons of games for you to enjoy! We plan to open our arcade a few days before our first PODS class, so be sure to check us out!
In other news, our debut at Barnesville’s Potato Days was a huge success! We were stationed in the Old City Jail and held a demonstration of what we will do at PODS. Not only that, but our good friend CJ from Wicked Soul Studios was with us to showcase his game, Cursed Gold. Kids that came in were blown over by the idea that they could make their own video games and that there was an active community in Fargo-Moorhead. We also had a raffle for a free class and a free t-shirt. The winners will be announced in our upcoming newsletter due out this Saturday!
