After 8 weeks of studying in the game development major, we gave our students the assignment to "make a 2D grid based game" using the basic C++ knowledge they have acquired so far.
These might not be the high-end, polished AAA games they will be creating in the future, but they are off to a promising start. The only restriction the challenge had was to make a grid based game using arrays.
In the coming weeks, we will go even further and take them through object orientation, operator overloading and much more! All these topics prepare them to take on even more complex and challenging projects. We can’t wait to see what they’ll be creating next!
