Game Jam: Create a game based on an academy, club, or activity in Wheaton High School that you participate in!
This is a very open-ended game jam. You can submit anything that you feel relates to an activity you do in WHS. Try to be creative-- it's your game and you can do whatever you like with it, as long as it is appropriate.
We will be displaying the games submitted during lunch as an arcade after the jam ends!
First place will win a prize of their choosing (as long as it doesn't exceed our budget)!
Don't know where to start?
Start off by installing Unity, which is a professional software used for game development at all levels. It's very easy to use, and you can make pretty amazing games with it! Link: https://unity.com/
After that, you can go through the basic Unity tutorials to learn the fundamentals of Unity: https://learn.unity.com/
Brakeys has some nice tutorials on making 2D games: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPV2KyIb3jR5xTUU7fitudKE6hCDA4Hso
Once you grasp the basics of Unity, you can start building your game! Reach out to me if you have any questions, and I'll do my best to answer them.
