Game Development Camp at the Indiana University Media School is a rewarding experience for students interested in all sorts of games and the technology that powers them.
Students need no previous experience, and they don’t have to be tech-savvy or avid game players. We welcome those who are curious and want to spend a week or two in summer learning something new, right along with those who aspire to be the next cutting-edge game creator.
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.
June 12–16 and June 26–30
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.
June 12–16 and June 19–23
Advanced 3D, June 26–30
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.
