Papa’s Pizzeria is the busiest it has ever been. In Electronic Game Design: Pizza Delivery, we will create our own version of a platform game that will require players to collect ingredients, make pizza and serve all of the hungry customers. We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Then, we will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the class, everyone takes home a working Windows-compatible game.
