Building a computer game can seem a daunting task, but the Shaun the Sheep Game Academy site offers plenty of help and resources. Although the guide has been written with families in mind it can easily be adapted for classroom use. The guide includes support and activities on:

  • Getting started – includes what is needed to begin, to plan the work and tips on using Scratch
  • Introduction to game design – includes thinking about what makes a good game and planning the game’s overall design
  • Developing the game characters – includes deciding what characters to use in the game and choosing what they do
  • Designing the game levels – includes planning what happens in each level of the game
