As they develop their games, campers will learn to utilize the revolutionary Virtual Reality(VR) and Augmented Reality(AR) features of the engine, and test their games using real Oculus Rift VR systems and other cutting edge technology!

With Hofstra faculty and staff, campers will learn:
  • Concepts and techniques used by today’s leading professional game programmers
  • Authentic coding like the pros
  • Game testing
