Unreal Game Design

Overview
Using the Unreal Game Design engine, campers create a game from the first-person perspective. They explore the advantages and disadvantages of gameplay from this perspective and determine how to maximize character control, field of vision, and asset creation. Campers are also introduced to game theory in which the story of the game and why the player has to complete certain objectives are just as important as the game actions.
