Step-by-step tutorial for writing your own game on Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

This is an older tutorial but we realized we hadn’t posted it before – a full step-by-step tutorial for creating your own game with Raspberry Pi. Via Stuart Andrews on alphr.

The Raspberry Pi is a computing sensation, but it was originally designed with one key intention: to inspire a new generation to look beyond games consoles, smartphones and tablets, and embrace the way of code…

…It comes with a selection of programming environments pre-baked into its Debian-based Linux distribution, but the easiest way to get started is with Scratch. Created by the Media Lab at MIT, Scratch was designed to teach children the fundamentals of programming, without the need to learn complex syntax.

Scratch allows users to drag and drop characters and objects into a game environment, then program their actions using building blocks, which are grouped into colour-coded categories such as Controls, Motion, Operators and Sensing. By dragging and dropping these into place you can create surprisingly sophisticated interactive stories, animations and games, then share them with a global community of students and developers.
