Over 188 million video and computer games were sold in 2012, at an average rate of six every second. The days of the dark, noisy video arcade are over; now games are in everybody's living rooms or pockets.

Using Scratch, MIT's web-based programming language, we will pay tribute to yesterday's hits by breaking them down into their component
art, sounds, and mechanics - and building something new. We can make them bigger, harder, better. We have the technology.

(10+ year old - Some experience necessary.)
