What Your Student will learn in this Game Design Workshop
We will be using Unity's Timeline and Mecanim system to animate characters, props, and environment in storytelling cutscenes and for actual interactive gameplay.
We will be using Visual Scripting to control John Henry's attack moves, powerups, and combat techniques, as well as using Visual Scripting to code the attacks of our enemies.
We will be going over tips and tricks on how to texture so that no matter what time of day or lighting that you use in your scene your textures will look stunning and fit the mood you're going for.
We will teach you techniques on how to choreograph fight scenes and shoot staged combat scenes that feel real and add to the drama of the moment.
We will be using visual scripting to code our game mechanics and variables, and using math we will communicate things such as health and energy to the on screen UI.
We will discuss the historic times of the reconstruction period in America as well as show and talk about the history, facts, and legends of American Folklore.
