Storytelling in Games
This Short Course is part of our Game Design Fundamentals Package, a set of nine courses that are perfect for embedding into middle and high school courses, or using in summer camps and after school programs.

Students will be able to…

- Write a card-based role playing game (RPG) based on the Hero’s Journey
- Create a story portfolio
