Allows students to make 3-D adventure games exploring key features of game design, while learning about narrative structure and basic computer programming concepts.
3D computer games provide a hugely stimulating way to learn.

select elements from an extensive object library to create a unique game world
create and animate 3D characters
import their own music, graphics and video
set rules for game play
