CS110: Advanced Roblox Game Design

Course Description

Ready to take your game design to the next level? Expand your knowledge of programming while learning how to create more advanced games that you can play in Roblox!

Advanced Roblox Game Design is for students who already have an understanding of the fundamentals of Roblox, a global gaming platform with millions of exciting 3D games. While refreshing programming logic fundamentals, the curriculum gives a very hands-on, project-based learning experience for students who wish to code games with more advanced features using Roblox Studio. By the end of the course, students will be able to create, play, and share more advanced games, as well as synthesize everything they’ve learned in future projects of their own. 

This course will provide students with tools that they can use in virtually any project, so that the student has unique building blocks of code that they can integrate into any game of their choosing. In this way, the student builds their very own toolkit. The student also learns how to create the backbone of several types of projects, all in which they can take creative control. Students are truly challenged to think like game-creators, and taught the skills needed to code their thoughts into a game reality!

The first class session will cover software installation, configuration, and introductions.

Project Concepts Taught
Building a Coding Toolkit
- Introduces individual tools that the student can integrate into any game
- Examples include showing day/night, health, damage, a pet that always follows the player, currency, moving parts, teleportation, click detectors, and more!
Round-Based Game Loop
- Teleporting the player
- Loops that run every __ seconds
- Timer, repeated rounds
Simulator Project
- Models a weightlifting game
- Points, rebirths, and how to keep track of these things
- Leaderstats vs. player variables, and how to store these in the Roblox server
- GUIs and TextButtons
- Humanoid properties in Roblox, and how to change the properties of our choosing
