Join CU Science Discovery and the creators of Bloxels for a Saturday Game Jam! Our challenge for the day? To design the most fun video game possible! We’ll test a variety of different Bloxels games to learn about the program and then put our design and programming skills to use creating our own games. Using sets of colored blocks, we can create 13-bit pixelated characters and enemies and then animate them so that they can walk, run or fly. We’ll design colorful landscapes to set the scene for our games and add story blocks throughout to communicate key elements (and helpful hints!). We can customize our enemies to act in certain ways – and design Power Ups to give us a little help when we need it. We’ll test our games with friends and at the end of the day, we’ll have a chance to share our game designs with the rest of the group. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to build with Bloxels – and the people who created it!
