CCC4KIDS Project One Platform Game

I have been working with the wonderful and talented students from St. Helens primary school in Ipswich to learn about, design and make a platform video game. I am very pleased with both their hard work and their "professional" attitude of setting up "pretend" video game companies. The 16 students were taken on a course of the history of video games, design concepts of video games and basic computer art to produce the wonderful game you see below. They then divided themselves up in to four groups and produced one level of their game as a proof of concept for it.

This is the first project for CCC4KIDS aimed at getting children aged 7-11 interested in being creative with technology. Sincerest thanks to Mr. Babbs, Mr. Budd and St. Helens primary for letting us host the club at the school. I look forward to running many more exciting projects with them in the future.


  1. Awesome, I wish I could have been making games at that age!

  2. Fantastic job you guys are doing. Which program did you use. Which software did you use for this Scratch? We added you to our blogging list. We are a charity in NZ who runs a computer club. We haven't as much experience but we're getting there.
