Go beyond just playing video games, learn to make the games! You will have opportunities to learn principles of game design and programming through the use of various game design/development environments, with the primary focus being the GameMaker system. No matter your level, whether novice or with some experience in game design, we will help you hone and develop your skills and maybe even expand your horizons into other game design systems!
