Camp Description: A returning champion from summers past, Video Game Design camp welcomes a new instructor that offers an exciting new creative process! In this camp, students will jump into the video game development pipeline and practice 2D game design principles alongside RHO Interactive game design team. Using the Unity game engine and open-source software, campers will create new character skins, animations, backgrounds, and complete playable levels using RHO's multiplayer battle-game "Megaton Punchers". This camp offering requires no coding, as we will focus on the creation of digital assets and use of in-engine tools for making fully interactive experiences focused on core game design principles and narrative development practices.

In oder to ensure the safety of our creative community and to support all students and parents managing this challenging time, we are moving our summer camps to an online model and making these virtual camps FREE for all students! If you wish to donate to the educational programming offerings at KANEKO, we'd be forever grateful for your generosity.

    • Students will watch and complete tasks assigned independently.
