About This Book
In this book, you’ll learn how to program your own video games as well as draw your own unique characters. By doing the exercises in this book, you’ll also walk away with general programming concepts that will help you even outside of the Scratch environment—concepts like XY coordinates, variables, and conditional statements.
Don’t worry if math isn’t your strong suit or if you’ve never written a line of code in your life. This book will give you all the tools you need to get started. That’s what this book is all about. Get ready to dive into game design, pixel art, and programming.
