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.

Please note that Capital E are currently in the process of redeveloping our MediaLab and OnTV sessions. This might impact your booking. Groups affected will be contacted ahead of time by the MediaLab or OnTV Coordinator with further details and updated resources.

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.
