Schools & Teachers

Game Builder

Game Builder is an online resource for teachers and students making their very first videogame, and for those who have some experience already. 

Before you start making we want you to remember a couple of things:

  1. There's more to a good game than good code! As with most creative projects, success comes from good ideas and thorough preparation.
  2. Don't be discouraged! The videogames you've played before probably took thousands of hours and millions of dollars to make. Your first (and second, and third...) videogame will be simple. With each game you make, you’ll pick up more skills and improve upon your last.

Recommended for Year levels: 3-10

Learning areas: Technologies, Mathematics, English, Arts, Media Arts

Capabilities: Creative and critical thinking
