This was a week's project where my daughter learned about digital game design as part of Computer Science homeschool class as well as fulfilling the Digital Game Design Girl Scout Daisy badge.
As part of this effort, she learned some history of digital games. She played Pong and Zork I where she also compared a joystick/mouse vs text based input. Next she thought about how one would design a maze-based games and some issues that a developer might face. Once she had landed on a design, I wrote up the game with a blank maze and she filled in the array to shape out her maze.
