Limited Capacity full

Video game design is a cognitive exercise, useful as project-based learning (e.g. an integrated STEM project), and even curricula. A nice idea, but practically examined, the question arises, “what software should we use?”

What you’re looking for is the right “authoring tool”; a program for creating interactive, multimedia-focused software. You’re looking for an authoring tool user-friendly for beginners, but comprehensive enough that users can employ more resources and features as their mastery develops.

GameSalad Creator is a user-friendly application for creating video games playable on mobile touch-screen devices, plus Windows and Macintosh computers. Overall, however, “GameSalad” refers to an online community that empowers everyone to express and share their ideas through games.

In this workshop you will learn how to use GameSalad Creation software and access its supplemental resources. Like most authoring tools, it has “Free” and “Professional” editions.
