Let’s Make a Game!

After feeling stumped on my first draft of my children’s book, I decided to share it with a couple teachers I know and got some great feedback and additional resources. One of those resources is the California Standard on Math for Kindergarten ( http://www.corestandards.org/Math/Content/K/introduction/ ). I had no idea what kids know at that age, and this gives me some great guidelines! It also made me realize that my book could be a teaching tool as well!

I also spent some time watching some Maya modeling videos. I really love the cartoony look for props, and since I am limited on resources, I figured I would start modeling some things myself.

Ta-Da! A Hammer of Epic Proportions

I’ve also began to build out pieces of my game. I used the template for the ThirdPersonController project that Unreal has to get some character movement. I also started working on some UI and collisions in my environment. Still thinking a lot about how to use this space and incorporate #STEAM principles.

Made some cute books too 🙂
