KODU – the next steps

  1. Each student should collect a KODU Game lab booklet. (In ICT1 near the teacher’s desk) Students should not write in this booklet as these are shared.
  2. Students should each have an X-Box controller. (Near the teacher’s desk in ICT1)
  3. Students will have completed the following:
  • Starting on Page 6 in the booklet, play the Bonk-Out Version 8 Game from the ‘Load World’ option on the main KODU menu. Play this 4 or 5 times.
  • Complete tutorials 1, 2 & 3 on pages 7 -11. (Note that Tutorial 1 is actually listed as Tutorial 01 V03 on KODU.) If you wish, you can watch a couple of video tutorials on these: Video 1 and Video 2.)
  • Click on the link to this video and produce the game/world compiled by Nicki Maddams.
  • Once completed – you must create your own world from scratch, add a character, get it to collect objects, and score as in the above  game.

4. In order to experiment with the different elements in creating a new world, watch this video on how to create your own world.
