Educational Course Materials

Kids’ creative thinking and hands-on skills are nurtured while they design new games or recreate ones from the past. In the image above you see the outline of the accompanying course we provide. GameGo comes with a  multi-lesson online course to help users to learn the basics of making your own retro games. The course aims to guide students to understand and learn the software and hardware knowledge of game development starting with a simple game based on graphical programming, gradually deepening and iterating continuously to make a relatively complex, multi-level, and story-telling game project. The course provides a large number of game examples for students to understand the concepts and principles through improvement and optimization.
