3D Game Design

The wonderful world of 3D Game Design is now, more than ever, open for anyone and everyone to explore!

Each student will get to construct an interactive 3D video game set in a world of their creation, complete with challenges and puzzles. The game design can be as simple or challenging as the student likes. After creating their game, the students will take part in Arcade Mode where they’ll get to share and play each other’s games.

During the game design process, students will explore and discover challenges and puzzles. They will be encouraged to take risks and assess and modify their game designs as they progress through the programme.

The health and safety of our visitors and staff is very important to us so we continue to follow Ministry of Health advice and guidelines around physical distancing, hygiene, visitor numbers and contact tracing. All visitors are asked to stay home if they are feeling unwell, to maintain physical distancing while in Capital E and are required to complete contract tracing upon entering via the NZ COVID Tracer app or manually. We’ll continue to monitor advice from the Wellington City Council and Ministry of Health and will share updates here and on social media.

My visit to Capital E was really great. I have many friends who produce music on their computers but I’ve never tried to do so myself. After this session however, I am definitely going to download Sony’s Acid when I get home. Overall great experience and a great teacher.

Really good setup - it is such an engaging environment.

    How do I get my game I created when I was in your studio?
    Thanks Archie

      Kia ora Archie, thanks for getting in touch. To download the saved game you created during your time with us, visit our downloads page and click through to find your folder: MediaLab and OnTV –> 2021 –> 05-May –> 20210519-Medbury-Prep-School –> MediaLab

      Your game will be in the folder for the group you attended as part of (“Odds” or “Evens”)

      Please note that once you have downloaded your game draft, you will need to install a copy of Atmosphir (Windows or Mac only) and copy your downloaded file to the correct folder in order to play or keep building it. Link to download an Atmosphir installer and instructions about where to copy your game draft to can be found on our 3D Game Design page

      Good luck and happy game designing!
