Game Programming with Construct 2

Tue, August 25
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Create your own video game and publish it!

We will use Construct 2, an HTML 5 game engine, to design a side-scrolling platformer game like Super Mario Bros. or a physics based game like Angry Birds. Construct 2 provides a library of behaviors for sprites, such as the platform movement behavior with gravity and physics. It uses an easy to learn event-based interface for game programming.

Try some of the games people have created on the Scirra Arcade. Fun stuff!

If don’t have your own Windows laptop, you’re welcome to use one of ours. They will be configured and ready to go!

    Is this class appropriate for 7 year olds?

      Hi Rebecca,

      Construct 2 is probably more suited for ages 10+, but it depends on the kid. A 7 year old might have a hard time following all the directions, but if they were focused and had an adult to help, it would work.
