Kid & Parent “Create a Video Game” 2-day Session

This two day program is for kids aged 8-14 to learn how to make video games WITH their parents. You’ll both learn about storytelling, stories that have multiple endings, character development, what makes games fun and how to make your own game. You’ll be using our software StoryStylus and you can keep using it for a full year after together.

Day One:

  • Storytelling basics – what are the nouns of your story – people, place, things, conversations
  • What kind of games do you want to make? Are they simple or do they have lots of possible endings?
  • Homework – take photos or make drawings of your characters and locations, write out your story

Day Two:

  • Learn how to do basic programming (we’ve taught kids as young as 10, so you’ll be okay, Mom/Dad!)
  • Put all the pieces of your story together
  • How to test and share your story game on the web, Facebook and tablet

LIMITED to 6 parent/child teams per session.

Participants will be working at the One More Story Games studio. We are located at 80 Bradford Street, Suite #328, Barrie.
