Game Design and Implementation

Game Design and Implementation is a two-year program for students interested in the creative worlds of video game design, 3-D modeling, and computer programming

Students learn the history of games from ancient times to present. They create board games, card games and dice games while learning the fundamentals of Game Design. Then students create digital games using Game Maker software, GameSalad and Unity.

Students will explore various art concepts during the first year and 3D modeling during the second year. Finally, students will design their own video games in groups as well as create a virtual video game design company.

Who is eligible to attend?

How do I enroll?

The first step is to meet with your home school guidance counselor to learn how Career & Technical Education can benefit your career path. Your counselor can then help you arrange a tour of our Albany (Colonie) or Schoharie campuses, or the Center for Advanced Technology at Mohonasen.
