Game Development Software/Engine
GDevelop is a full-featured, open-source game development software where students can create video games without any knowledge in a specific programming language. All the game logic is built up using an intuitive drag and drop development environment and powerful event-based system.
Students can explore the interface of G-Develop, ideate, and design a game level layout using the concepts of game design. In GDevelop, games are based on objects that are displayed on the scene. Objects can be of different types; some of the types are Sprites and Tiled Sprites. They can be animated, moved, and manipulated in different ways.
Lil Bub Hello Earth, Hyperspace Dogfights, and Galaxy Protectors are some of the popular games created with GDevelop.
Unity is a cross-platform game engine where students can create three-dimensional (3D) and two-dimensional (2D) games.
It allows students to analyse the game development process and create a Game Design Document (GDD) which is a highly descriptive living software design document of the design for a video game. GDD includes the Game Identity, Design Pillars, Genre/Story/Mechanics Summary, Features, Interface, Art Style, and Music/Sound of the video game.
Temple Run, Angry Birds Epic, and Super Mario Run are some of the popular games created with Unity.
