The Project

The course project is a three-stage, team assignment to build a game using the framework from the introductory course. Each team consists of up to 3 members. Membership is subject to instructor approval and is open to modification until the end of the week of the drop date for the course. The first stage of the assignment proposes the features that your team will add to the framework and identifies which member will work on which feature. Each member is responsible for a distinct feature. Each team meets with the instructor to review the proposal and obtain approval. The second stage is a release of the framework that includes the feature. The third and final stage presents your own team's completed game to the class, which includes your features along with several features incorporated by other teams. Details are on the Project Requirements page.
