  • What We Do

    We're on a mission to teach your kids to build awesome video games.

    Monday

    Introduction of Basics

     

    We are going to be modifying existing games to get the kids familiar with the Construct 2 engine. It will be a lot of adjusting settings, adding new features and understanding how to “program” games. We’ve got a few games to play with as we explore.

     

    Tuesday

    Getting Deeper

     

    We are going to do some crazy things with a Break Out-like game. We will build new levels, add some features and really start to challenge the kids.

     

    Wednesday

    Launching Projectiles

     

    We are going to step it up with a blank template and build a Fruit Ninja-like game from scratch. What will your kids pick to shoot out of the fruit? A present? A rock? A shoe? Maybe some poo?

     

    Thursday

    Full Speed Ahead

    When we will recreate the first level of Super Mario Brothers-like game (or at least something close.) It is going to be a challenge but I know the kids are up for it. Now would be a great time to break out the old Super Nintendo so they know what we’re talking about.

    Friday

    It's All About the Fun

     

    We are going to be playing games and helping kids who want to build something custom. We are going to invite the parents, grandparents and even your kid’s friend to come out and see what we have been building.
