Beginning Game Design with Python

February 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Level up your Python programming skills by creating a simple computer game! In this workshop you will be introduced to Pygame, a free and open-source library for creating computer games in Python. Specifically, you will create a simple “Frogger” style game that will introduce you to the following concepts: drawing text and graphics to the screen, capturing keyboard input and representing movement, creating basic collision detection, increasing difficulty, and implementing game loops with win/lose conditions. Because we will not have time to cover all of the fundamentals, it is necessary to have at least some previous Python programming experience. We will work in VSCode and the game assets (e.g., graphics) will be provided for you.
