Welcome to Level 1

To make your game with the programs we'll be using, you’ll need internet access. Keep a document where you can record login details for programs, as well as URL links. 

TEACHERS: head here for module outline and outcomes.

We’ll be using: 

Scratch 3.0: a free, easy to use online block coding program

Beepbox: a chiptune music making program 

Piskel: an online pixel-art editor 

It can be easy to lose work, so make sure you create and save a folder for information, files and game assets.
