There's a world of games out there. You may even have them on your cell phone or your iPod. So it is our pleasure to announce to all game design enthusiasts, "Your time has come; the fundamentals of game design are within your grasp." Join us to build simple interactive games with the latest Web technologies. Draw, animate and craft interactivity by applying basic programming in JavaScript. No programming experience is necessary, though students should be computer literate, preferably with some experience in programs such as Illustrator or Photoshop. The instructor introduces you to the basics of interactivity for game design using preprogrammed game modules that illustrate behaviors like mouse- and keyboard-controlled animation and boundary events. Let the games begin!
