Middle School Game Design 1a: Introduction

Middle School Game Design 1a: Introduction


We love to play video games, but have you ever wanted to build your own? If you are interested in a career in technology but also want a creative outlet, Game Design might be the field for you. Learn how to build a game from the ground up in this interactive and hands-on course that will teach you all the ins and outs of making your own game.


  • What’s your favorite game? Even if you aren’t much of a gamer, you might remember board games or outdoor games that you’ve played with your friends. Games have been with us ever since, well, since we’ve been human! You might think the bow and arrow in your video game is just a cool weapon to have in your arsenal. But going way, way back, people played archery games to see who was the best shot. Sometimes whole cities would play games to decide disagreements instead of going to war! Ever since the beginning, games have been a lot of fun, and so much more.

    What will you learn in this unit?

    • Define what a game is and explain how games are important to society
    • Identify how simulations can be used to teach skills
    • Analyze games for the four elements of game design
    • Understand narrative and ludonarrative and how they relate to the storytelling aspect of games
