If your teen loves video games, they might want to see how they are developed! The Digital Convergence Lab at Northern Illinois University is offering Video Game Development as an afterschool program open to all high school students.
Video Game Development will be eight weeks with two sessions per week from 4 to 6 p.m., Monday and Wednesday, from Sept. 13 to Nov. 3. The program will be at the Digital Convergence Lab in room 338 of the Founders Memorial Library on the NIU campus.
Teens will get to explore popular video games; learn the essentials of game design; develop a game story; create game characters; invent game goals and rules; storyboard game scenarios; design a game interface; and create sound effects. Using computer-based tools, participants will take their design ideas through to the prototype stage of a playable video game. Much of the software used during the program is freely available online, so participants can continue to use it at home. For more information, visit NIU’s website.
