You can create games in your browser and test them while waiting for your micro:bit. Try it out at the link above and start experimenting!
Monday office hours we will be going over using the emulator - so try it out in advance, but plan to check out the Zoom meeting too.
After office hours on Monday we will be sending out a game design worksheet. We will use this during the week to design games for different platforms. Here are the options for advanced game platforms:
There will be extra office hours this week if you want them - if you plan to try and use one of the more advanced platforms above plan to attend the office hours!
Before we go any further: We will support you through demos, question and answer times, and by email. For video calls, demos, walk throughs, and question/answer sessions we will be using Zoom (https://zoom.us/). Before each event we will email out the information you need to connect.
