Using C++ and the SFML graphics library, build a basic game engine for a 2D top-down game, upon which you can then build an RPG adventure game, a sandbox-type building game, or whatever you can dream up. Learn to use GitHub to store code and collaborate on projects. (Intermediate: Grades 6-8/Ages 11-13; Senior: Grades 9-12/Ages 14-17)
Prerequisites: 30+ WPM, some experience with a programming language such as C++, Java, or Python. "I don't plan to spend much time on teaching the basics of C++, rather we will jump right in to the game, and explain/clarify concepts as needed as we go. I would be okay with anyone who was in the Board Game Development group, as well as anyone who has some practice with C++, Java, Python, etc., or even someone who is willing to put in a few hours on Codecademy or similar prior to the start of the group."
This group will meet Tuesdays in the computer lab from 4:00-6:00 pm for six weeks.
