Modern computer games come in a variety of different genres. All the way from two-dimensional puzzles to vast open worlds with immersive storylines. Although games can appear to be very different, they are for the most part built upon the same design principles. These are the things that make games fun and exciting, and balances challenges against rewards, as well as defining how a player interacts with the game world. 

In Unreal Game Design, we utilise the power of the Unreal Engine; an engine used by countless popular indie and AAA games. It provides perfect starting point for aspiring game designers, principally because it’s packed full of tools to quickly get anyone started making a game. The course primarily targets 3D game design (and most of what is taught can be applied to 2D games as well). We teach the fundamentals of using the Unreal Engine to design and create game scenarios, as well as Unreal's powerful visual scripting language; Blueprints. We use this to get the power of coding without the complexity of programming syntax and it allows us to create some fantastic custom behaviour to our game mechanics. It includes learning some of the most essential concepts of any programming language, such as variables, branching and looping. All this enables us to openly explore the world of game design using practical exercises and projects.

I gave it a 5 because it is a very fun camp and it helped me learn a lot about coding.

I had a very fun time in this camp. The tutors were nice and I learned a lot of stuff that I would not have known before. The engine used is complicated but as the days go along you get more used to it, and it therefore becomes easier. Creating games on the engine is very fun and I enjoy playing not

My Review

Overall the course was an interesting beginning to 3D game design, i learned quite a lot about unreal engine 4, for example the basics like using blueprints in our games. The tutors were very nice and helped me over the past few days of this course. The actual course itself was stimulating.

Unreal course!!!!!

This camp was AWESOME. the program was REALLY EASY to use and it was very fun to play with all the physics and settings. I also loved using the different game modes. The tutor was a great help whenever there was a problem.

I loved this course
