Take your game design skills to the next level by creating and animating your own character sprites, objects, and backgrounds.
Start with a name, develop the character’s personality, signature moves, special powers, and a storyline. Finish with a fully animated character to be used in your very own game!
Students do not need any prior experience in game design, animation, or sketching.
Student-created games will be available on a password protected Black Rocket website to share with friends and family.
