Construct Game Design

Create, customise and play your own games and learn game design principles

Whether you're new to the world of game design or you want to advance from Scratch, this course will teach you how to make your own games that you can play and share with friends and family. The brilliance of Construct is that it tackles a lot of the foundations for you, giving you more time to customise the elements of your game. You get to control the physics: How does the gravity work? How far does your character jump? That's all for you to decide!

FAQs

My child has no prior experience - can they still attend?
Yes! We don't assume any prior knowledge for our courses.  The only exception is if when we run followup courses that are labelled as 'Advanced' or 'Level 2' that normally require the prior course to have been taken.  Do ask if you're unsure.
Five Stars The online course was great and the tutor engaged with the children and helped them calmly and effectively - we were not needed at all. My son really enjoyed the course and did all of the extra challenges too.
