Course Overview

Our super exciting Roblox Arcade course is based on the popular Roblox Studio game development programme and aims to help you design not just one but a variety of games to amaze your friends. Budding game designers will learn the principles of practical game design, Lua programming and earning Robux currency.

Students will design an obstacle course with a variety of scripted features, create collectible objects and earn points that will be shown on a leaderboard. They will learn how to become a young entrepreneur by earning Roblox currency Robux, learning how to monetise their game and creating advertisements.

Students will then create a battle royale arena, in which they enhance their Lua programming skills by coding game loops, surface GUIs, managing players between different locations and several other features. Students will learn how to use local servers to simulate multiplayer game environments.

By the end of the course, students will have created at least two fully-functioning games with multiple advanced features for others to play!

Fire Tech Camp was a great experience and the best camp I've ever been to. I think the camp does a great job in combining fun with learning.
