A small collection of student work from Lab Rats, the afterschool game development class I teach at City High School.

"Combining their artistic creativity, ingenuity, and technical savvy, participants construct their own puzzles using the Portal 2 game engine — an intuitive, physics based tool set. Each student shares their work with their peers in many iterations, always observing what works with their creation and incorporating feedback to improve the users experience  Opening themselves to criticism and learning from the community, participants become critical thinkers while blurring the lines between work and play."

The Portal 2 Puzzle Maker is just one of the many tools that we use in analyzing and designing our own games.
