Video Game Design

About the Class

Students learn to design and create video games using trigonometry and higher math, computer programming in C++, as well as 2D computer animation. This course prepares students for skills necessary for two of the video game industry's biggest needs: qualified video game designers and programmers.

Strong programming skills are not needed. Such skills will be developed and refined as you progress throughout the program. This is a math intensive program.


Meet the Instructor

Jim Flatmo

Hi, I'm Jim Flatmo, the instructor for the Video Game Design program here at Sno-Isle. I'm pleased to be teaching this program, especially here just a few short miles from Redmond - one of the major hubs of the industry. Students who excel in this program have a chance to be in the heart of a fast paced, rewarding industry where creativity, teamwork and leadership provide virtually limitless opportunities.

This class also partners with a number of college and industry groups, which not only give students access to better knowledge, it also helps them make professional industry connections. However, as exciting and fun as this kind of opportunity is - it's also a lot of work. Students in this program must not only practice their design skills, they are essentially learning a new language (c++) while also pushing their limits in math and physics. This course is an Algebra II equivalency in most sending school districts.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about this exciting program!
