What will I learn?

HTML 5 Gaming is rapidly evolving and there has never been a better time to give it a try. This workshop focuses on using Impact JS to create amazing retro style games in the browsers without a plugin.  Impact takes advantage of Canvas, JavaScript and modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, FireFox, IE 9+) to deliver fast fluid games directly in the browser. Even better is that Impact JS works on mobile browsers too.

During this workshop we will cover:
• How to install tools for HTML 5 game building.
• Introduction to Game Design, Game Theory and Web Gaming.
• Intro to ImpactJS.
• Making your first ImpactJS game.
• Game Asset generation with PhotoShop Scripting.
• Working with inheritance, animation and sound in ImpactJS.
• Deployment strategies and distribution (Web, Desktop, Mobile).
• Deploying your game to Windows 8 as a Metro Style App.
