3D Game Design In Detail

Courses run 9:30am - 4:30pm* Mon-Fri
*Winchester venue finishes 5:30pm/3:15pm (Last Day)

Campers can choose between two versions of the course, depending on if they want to concentrate more on artistic design or complex coding:

Creator Version (all ages) - create your own FPS games from scratch using an amazing toolkit of terrains, textures, characters, AI units, weapons and more. Learn how to create engaging levels to make an amazing gaming experience, whilst customising everything from the colour of the grass to the fire and recoil of the weapons.

Developer Version (ages 11+ only) - as well as creating personalised levels, characters and game-play experiences, dive deeper into the code and mechanics behind the game elements, learning the C# programming language to have complete control over every aspect of the game.

On both versions of the course, campers take home all of their files, assets and projects they have made during the course, and they can continue designing and creating more games at home. They will have full access to all of the course material after the camp - there are also lots of other resources available for free online to continue learning.

Creator: 3D objects, textures and maze game

Developers: 3D objects, rooms, textures and the asset store

FAQs

We only have a Mac at home - can we still use Unity after the course?

Yes! You can download Unity for Mac and PC and their project files from the course will work with both versions.

Five Stars Just left my boys’ first Tech Camp. They’ve been at the Chelsea camp all week doing game design in Unity. They loved it and are thinking of doing the robot making one next year. Really professional and helpful staff. Very happy kids.
