Hello there, my name is Jarret Flack, a Junior in the computer science department at Colorado State University. Ever since I was young, video games have been a source of creativity and inspiration for me. If you are anything like me your childhood was shaped by the influence of major titles like the Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, and Minecraft.

In this blog, I will explore some of the mechanisms behind the scenes in these older classics. I will also explore game design methods that can be applied to your own projects if you are inspired to make your own game. Little to no experience is required to start learning on this blog, so let’s jump right in!
