In this online course, students will apply the skills learned in Game Design 1 to create their own RPG video game. Students will dig deeper into object-oriented programming through the use of values, indices, and arrays, which will allow them to save and load games, map coordinates, and more.

Students are taught these programming concepts through our innovative & engaging educational method. What they learn will be reinforced through interactive exercises and quizzes on our unique learning platform.

This class offers new perspectives in design, and students use these new techniques to make more dynamic and challenging games. When finished students can publish and share their games on CDs, jump drives, or online.

We bought this for both of our sons, ages 12 and 14. The 12-year-old used it as his science for the year; the 14-year-old just for fun. My younger son loves it so much, I actually have to limit his time per day. He is almost done with his subscription, and is submitting his mod for grading. Any time he has questions or concerns, teachers are always there to help, and they always follow up with a "everything work out OK?" email. Great customer service! I have never used other programming programs, so I do not know how Mod Design 1 compares...(more)

This is the second Youth Digital product we've purchased& my son loves them!

He enjoys the subject matter, but Youth Digital's support & engaging videos are an incredible added bonus.

My son ran into an issue & worked on it with their support team via email until they escalated it to an WebEx. They really went the extra mile & I've told them so via social media on Twitter (& they were kind enough to reply!).

This purchase was so helpful that after completing it, my son (who had some previous Java experience) felt confident enoug...(more)

A great program. The video quality is great and the kids find the instructor funny and engaging. They follow along with the lessons and have picked up on the coding amazingly well. My 8 year old has really caught the coding bug. They enjoy the quizzes and really feel a sense of accomplishment after each lesson and quiz. The kids have planned which courses they will each do next. We will definitely continue with youth digital.

This has been the best purchase, by far, in my homeschool curriculum! My son loves the class. The videos are easy to understand, entertaining and done in a step by step fashion to ensure success. When my son did have trouble, Youth Digital was quick to respond to the email and helped him through. The troubleshooting and reviews at the end of each segment are valuable and check for understanding before moving on to the next lesson. We will definitely continue to look for more DigitalYouth products that interest our family. My younger son h...(more)

My 10 year old son took the Mod Design 1 class and loved it. He had no prior programming experience at all. I took Basic and Pascal in Middle School, but that was it so nobody in our house knew Java or could help. It didn't matter. It was totally on his level, and geared towards his age group. 't used it as a reward after he did his regular homeschooling. He loved it. The Youth Digital folks were great at getting back to him regarding questions, etc. He is so proud of the Mod he created. We will take more Youth Digital classes, even if we can...(more)

You found something my kids were really interested in doing and this gave them their first exposure to computer programming. Because they are self-motivated to design and create new tools for their game, they sit and help each other and work together. We are especially impressed with the presentation of the program and also the positive way your staff has interacted and responded to my daughters questions. We have shared this information with several other families who also play Minecraft. Thanks you so much!
Jason Brand, Co-op Member
My son loves this program. Its very simple and easy for him to learn by himself. Its his favorite subject of the day. We will be using other programs by Game Design again.
J.S.Boyd, Co-op Member
Game Design by Youth Digital is fantastic for a child who wants to learn Game Design. My daughter (nine years old) took the class and loved it. She enjoyed the videos and the humor of the instructor, who responded to all questions in a timely fashion. My daughter even uploaded her game to her website. She has signed up for app design one and has begun it. We have told many people about it and simply love YouthDigital.
Christine M., Co-op Member
Bravo! Awesome online class. Youth Digital is A-plus in class design, support and communication. My 10 year old is ecstatic over the class. He giggles every time he watches a class video. I even find the videos entertaining and fun. We can't believe he is learning java so fast. He is already talking about taking the 3D game class next. A great and valuable resource to add to your current curriculum.
Marla Jollie, Co-op Member
Got this for my son, an avid MineCraft fan but only lukewarm on the idea of programming ... until now!

Great online learning facility with professionally produced material and quick email response!

Makes learning something new and challenging fun for him ... and affordable for us through the awesome Homeschool Buyers Co-op!
