Design & Code a Game
You have complete freedom make any sort of game you can imagine using MakeCode Arcade. You can design everything from an adventure game where you rescue lost animals to a classic jumping platformer where you avoid flying sharks. The options are limitless. Whatever game you make, you just need to need include gaming elements.
We have a tutorial for each gaming element on our YouTube 8-Bit Challenge Playlist. Learn how to animate your character, design a custom level, and how to code a jumping mechanic.
We will also host two live streams every Saturday from October 17th – December 5th. Join to us to see how you can take these individual gaming elements and turn them into a full game. Full schedule below.
- Dev Stream – this stream will focus on creating a full game from start to finish.
- Remix Stream – this stream will focus on how to remix and customize an existing game.
