Teens: Google® Android™ Game Development with Unity®
Make Your Own Game for Android™ – the World’s Fastest-Growing Mobile OS
Students design and build a 3D video game for play on any Android™ device. The course covers the process of game development, including assembling provided game assets (like characters, items, levels and textures) into a playable game.
Students use assets created in Introduction to 3D Art and Modeling for Game Design or materials provided by the instructor. With guidance from actual game developers, teens learn real-world development techniques for game design and how to create fun and engaging mobile games. The Unity® development engine provides the platform for creation. This powerful game development tool is used by professional app developers to create best sellers like Temple Run™: Oz, Bad Piggies™ and Deus Ex: The Fall™.
At the end of the week, teens go home with their own game app, an extensive knowledge of how video games are made for the Android™ mobile platform and a solid foundation in mobile app development.
What You’ll Learn: Google® Android™ Game Development with Unity®
Digital Media Academy may slightly vary the course curriculum to better fit the needs/expertise level of a given class.
Who Should Attend: Google® Android™ Game Development with Unity® Ages 13–17 | Beginner – Advanced | No Game Design or Programming Experience Required
For aspiring game developers interested in mobile platforms, specifically the Google® Android™. For those who want to learn the Unity® development platform from an industry professional.
PLEASE NOTE: Students must provide their own Android™ device running an Android OS (Gingerbread) of 2.3.5 or later. Devices using earlier operating systems may not run student-created games. Kindle Fire™ and Nook® devices are not recommended, as both have proprietary software that prevents student- developed games from loading. DMA is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Students need to bring their device and power cord to class every day. If students utilize DMA-provided assets (models, textures, sounds, etc.) for their game, they cannot upload it to the Android™ store – even as a free app. Students can, however, create their own assets in Introduction to 3D Art and Modeling for Game Design.
To ensure that updates do not interfere with development, students are asked to NOT UPDATE their operating system during the week of class.
