Institute of Technology introduces participants to the concepts of video game production in this webcast series. Presenters will demonstrate the key stages in the process of developing the core game engine through the creation of a "top-down shooter" game called "Star Trooper," using Visual C# 2005 Express Edition, the new lightweight integrated development environment from Microsoft designed for beginner programmers. If you want to build the game yourself as you follow along, you can download Visual C# 2005 Express Edition and the webcast tutorial materials from here.
