Modern games engender a particular type of relationship between a designer and a player. This course introduces the student to digital game prototyping practice; from digital sketches to functional alpha builds to playable demos, students will work with a range of game engines to develop and demonstrate applied game design skills. Digital development is a dialogue with computational tools and students will develop strategies to effectively realize innovative digital game projects across genre and across platform.
Game design and development is an interdisciplinary field, requiring collaboration between artists, designers and developers. This course intensively reproduces the contexts of commercial game development by creating teams that cross different disciplinary boundaries to engage in iterative game making practices.
Students will be taught the basics and techniques of building commercial 2D and 3D games. Strong 3D characters and character animations are keys parts of modern games. Games like “God of War” or “Call of Duty” have well defined characters that are central for users to see and control. In 3D Modelling we investigate what makes for a great game character’s design.
Our curriculum also covers: Game Theory, Storytelling, Level Design, Programming, Game Art, Cinematics, Game Interface Design, Online Multiplayer Design, Interactive Narrative, Post-Mortem Analysis and Business of Games.
