Online STEAM Camp: Video Game Design with GameMaker

Interested in making your own video games but don’t know where to start? In this camp we’ll cover the game development engine GameMaker, making an 8-bit inspired classic space and top-down game, and developing game narratives. Learn GameMaker’s drag and drop code, explore popular video games and design your own game including characters, game goals and rules.

Instruction includes a combination of live online interactions with NIU faculty and staff, along with recorded videos and downloadable step-by-step instruction.
