Game Design - Your Way

Move from Mario to Mario Maker! Develop a wide range of creative skills, including conceptualizing game interactions, drafting storyboards, designing characters and applying sound and art images to computer games using Game Maker. Choose your favorite subject for the project topic — which is making a game of your own! Create different levels of game play (your parents can play the easy ones) with enhanced interactivity to keep players riveted. Not an artist? Not a problem! Use the professional-quality art that we’ve included in each project or create your own. When you’re done, take home your own multi-level game masterpiece and rule the world.
