Junior Video Game Design Bootcamp On Aug 27

August 15, 2022

On August 27th, local video game company Bermuda Island Games [BIG] and educational organization dCyfa will team up to put on a Junior Video Game Design Bootcamp.

A spokesperson said, “BIG hosted a Video Game Design Challenge in March with virtual participation from dCyfa. Based on the feedback from that Challenge, there needed to be a program that taught coding to a younger audience. As a result, BIG and dCyfa have joined forces to deliver the Junior Video Game Design Bootcamp, which will encourage younger students to learn how to apply coding in video games.

“The all-day Bootcamp will feature various coding levels using the same technology on which many of today’s video games are built! Beginners can learn how to use Scratch, to understand basic programming concepts. Intermediate coders can learn more advanced tools such as augmented reality, and experts can learn using Unreal Engine 5 for more 3D action games.

“The Junior Video Game Design Bootcamp will be held at Warwick Academy on August 27th from 9 am – 5 pm for children aged 7-14. The cost is to participate is only $10. Purchase tickets on PTix.com. For more information on the event, visit www.bermudaislandgames.com

“We are happy to sponsor this upcoming Bootcamp. Adrian is passionate about helping to develop a game design industry in Bermuda. Having successfully launched his educational game, Somers Island, after winning our Rocket Pitch Competition, it is wonderful to see his desire to pay it forward to ensure that he builds the next wave of game developers in Bermuda.

“A special thank you to BEDC, the Government of Bermuda Economic Development Department, Bermuda Motors, Horizon Communications Ltd., and People’s Pharmacy for making this event possible.”
