Create Your Own World

Game On at the 2021 Online Game Development Camp!

Online Game Development Camp

For eight years, students have developed new skills and created their own games under the guidance of The Media School’s game design faculty at our Game Development Camp. This year will be no different. While we can’t be together physically, we’re still providing an opportunity for fun summer learning using the same elements that have made our camp so successful over the years. Our camp faculty have worked on mainstream industry projects such as “Tales From the Borderlands,” “The Sims,” “Ultima” and the video game adaptation of “Game of Thrones.”

At the 2D sessions, students will design and develop their very own 2D games, deployable to the Web, PC/Mac/Linux, mobile devices and others.

This camp focuses on independent game development and setting goals that have a realistic prospect of completion. Students will leave with versatile skills to create a 2D game of almost any design.

Each 3D camp week is designed to introduce students to the same tools large companies use to create big budget games.

Students manipulate and build interactivity for objects and environments while exploring an advanced 3D game engine, Unreal Engine 4, a pro tool used to create some of the world’s hottest games.

Check out our game development camp exclusively for girls.

At least one of the staff always helped or had helpful information.  All of them were awesome to have at the camp.  Really made the camp.

The leaders of the camp were very nice and fun to talk to and clearly have a passion for games.

When I first arrived, I knew nothing – now I feel like I can make a game.

[My Daughter’s] experience in the camp was FANTASTIC!  To be honest, we weren’t sure if we were getting her in over her head or not, but she came home every evening with positive commentary and rolled out of bed early each morning with no complaints.
