Game Creation

Game Creation

Our course combines traditional tabletop gaming with digital game design using tools like Unity and Roblox. You’ll learn how to create and run a tabletop role-playing game, and apply those skills to the development of video games. From character and world building to level design, we’ll guide you through the creative process of tabletop RPGs and show you how to translate those skills to the digital realm of game design. By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills to create your own games using Unity and Roblox.
