Create Serious Games without Coding
Attendees will be guided through a rapid development process for a serious game using only a drag and drop techniques. This valuable day that will provide the basic knowledge and transferable skills attendees can use to make a serious digital game on any platform.
Used within education, by indie developers and commercial companies, Unity with the Game Creator plugin enables anyone to drag and drop highly efficient and functional code into their project. This allows anyone, from students and teachers through to commercial developers to decrease their timeline to focus on the aesthetics, mechanics, and learning outcomes of the resulting product.
Game Creator can also be used as a teaching tool for the programming process. With scripting modules called triggers, conditions, and actions, users can learn about programming logic with variables, collisions, and loops, but only if this is a desired outcome. However, much of this logic will become obvious while using the Game Creator plugin.
This workshop will be engaging and informative and most of all, the attendees will learn easy to use computer-based tools that will let them create their own serious digital game. Game Creator is required for this workshop and can be purchased from the Unity Asset store, and all participants will be provided with the digital assets needed to complete this workshop, totalling over $100 in value, plus a workbook detailing all the examples.
