How do I animate a game?

This year, our team is going to do the Game Design Online Challenge. We’ve got some great ideas, but we don’t know where to start with the actual animation. Can anyone ( @Cody ) help?

Thanks in advance.

Check out previous entries for former years. The entrants are required to include the software they used in either the titles or credits. Good luck – it’s my favorite Online Challenge.

The Design A Game Animation online challenge is just so good for so many reasons. It’s a lot of work, and it’s one of those things where more work = more quality and that is always reflected in the judging.

I discussed at length my process in this video, and I released my scene files here. I also made an older video series on this topic a while back which you can find here.

I know that probably doesn’t answer your question, but hopefully those resources are a good start.

Feel free to email me (, PM me or bug me on Skype (codysmith105).
