This simulation leads instructors and students through the process of creating a video game and marketing it to others. Students will learn about game design aspects, training, planning, exposure, and production in the process. Students use word processing, spreadsheet, databases, desktop publishing and presentation software to help promote and market the video games they make. Learn where you can get download free video game design software and tutorials.
Use this simulation to teach the office suite in a technology course for middle or high school students, or just to use the video game design aspects and commands to teach a summer camp or after school club on how to create their own video games. The game software runs on windows computers, I have not tried them on Macs. This 64 page set of documents includes 16 office suite assignments, commands to make maze game, videos on how to make your own character sprites and needed forms for the simulation. Sorry I was unable to include a sample finished game due to size limit. However instructions are included to download tutorial samples.
