Building on skills used in Games Design, pupils get to create a more complex game and learn more about jobs in digital technology. As a follow on from the previous activity, young people will have the opportunity to put some of the skills they have already learned into practice and build on these to create a more complex platform game. They will also build on their understanding of what it takes to create a video game and what the gaming industry in Scotland looks like.

This session is ‘fully flexible’ in its delivery, meaning we can deliver on any weekday at a time that is convenient for your learners.
