Easter Holiday Activities – Retro Video Game Design Camp 

*This activity club is for young people who are eligible for Free School Meals.

Along with our partners Digital Arts Box we are delighted to be able to offer a Retro Video Game Design Camp for young people aged 8-16, as part of our Holiday Activity Programme during Easter Holidays in Halton.

During this 4-day Video Game Design Camp, the young people participating will learn about creating video games using Bloxels & Makecode Arcade. They will get to develop design skills and learn to code their very own retro video games. The session will look at a variety of aspects and techniques whilst building retro-style video games.

We will cover topics like:

  • Character Design
  • Level Design
  • Making a Platformer Game
  • Maze Games
  • Coding
  • Testing Games

Who can get involved?

No previous experience is required, these activities are suitable for young people of all abilities. We are looking for young people who fulfil the following criteria and are able to commit to attending all four sessions:

  • Aged 8-16
  • A Halton resident
