News from PODS Game Design! We have started our Family Minecraft Nights! They will be held every Thursday night from 6:00 to 9:00. Come and play Minecraft! Our arcade will also be open for use at the same time.
In other news, our March classes are off to a great start! Our Beginners are learning about the intricacies of video game design and our advanced and workshop students are learning about Mechanics and Formulas of video games and developing some pretty amazing projects!
One Day Classes
We also have our One Day classes starting up this upcoming Sunday (the 13th). The game this time is Donut Invaders. Imagine: Hordes of Donuts descend upon the Earth, laying waste with their sprinkle cannons! The only thing that stands in their way are the Special Combat Operation Network Engineers, S.C.O.N.E. and their Anti-Donut weapons!
Pixel Art Textures
Then, on the Sunday after that (the 20th), we will have our Pixel Art Textures class! In this class, students will work with digital painting programs to put together a series of pixel art textures and how to tile them. The tiles created in this class can be used later in their own projects for RPG Maker and Game Maker: Studio!
We will have more One Day Classes in April and May, as well as more topics for our PODSter classes! In April and May, we will have the One Hour Game class for RPG Maker, in which students put together a game that can be completed in roughly one hour. A challenge? Yes! Impossible? Absolutely not! We will also have classes in the PLOT of your game and in MAP DESIGN to improve the maps of your game! They are going to be great! We also have our Workshop classes for students who are working on long-term projects.These classes are great because they provide excellent feedback on current ideas and game progress and help grow and develop new ideas!
We are also working on our Summer Schedule. Once it’s done, we will put it up! It’s going to be a great year for PODS Game Design!
