Students in Mr. Mileski’s high school game development class just received prototypes of their board games. As part of the class curriculum, students had to design and create the artwork for their own personal board game. It was a six-week project, but the results speak for themselves. The process involved learning how board games work, how players interact with the game as well as each other, analyzing that information, and creating a game to play. The students created all the artwork using Photoshop to manipulate their hand drawn art. They would go on to use a program called Component Studio to organize and assemble their game boards and pieces. All of this was uploaded to the website GameCrafter to professionally print these high quality prototypes.
Alexander Earnhardt is the creator of the empire building game “Gold Clash”, and Nick Wojciechowski made the racing game “Drift”.
