Institute of Play: Mobile Quest Summer Camp

topdiceMobile Quest is a week-long game design camp where 5th graders create games using Nokia N85 smart phones. This summer you’ll be the game designer: playing, analyzing and creating games for your peers to play. You’ll work with professional game designers and other experts and experience first-hand how to turn great ideas into great games.

During Mobile Quest, you’ll use smart phones, which are phones that know a lot—they take pictures, record video and can even show you where you are on a map. We’ll use the phones to make games about the city and talk about what it means to collect pictures, texts, and other information on our phones, discussing important questions like: Whose information is it? Where does the information go?
