Floresville Middle School Graphic Arts teacher Jesse Henley’s students have been learning about video game design using a new software program called Game Maker.

The students, who were excited about using the software, were able to create game rooms, sprites, and objects that are programmed to animate during the game, including sound effects. The students were also able to create different levels to increase the complexity of the game as a player masters a certain level.

After learning how to use Game Maker, the students were able to create their own version of a game. Overall this was a positive learning tool for the students, giving them real-world programming experience, better insight on what game designers do, and how video games are created.
