Course Description

RISD CE teen course: Blender Video Game Composition

Design by Luke Taylor

3D video games are both entertaining and challenging, and playing them well requires both logic and creativity. In this course you'll learn to use the free 3D modeling tool Blender to create your own 3D game. Blender will also enhance your basic knowledge of art, mathematics and physics. You’ll learn game composition, scripting code with Python and interactive rules implementation, using either game components from the first Blender course or a set of game objects provided in class. You'll export your final project to run in a web browser so you can share your game with your fellow students -- and they can share theirs with you. No prior experience is necessary, but Blender software experience is useful: This course is for the programming beginner!
