Game Design: Digital Development
0.50 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: GDES 3B70 Game Design: Conceptual and Visual Approaches is recommended but not required.
Modern game design grows in a continuum of digital evolution, yet games are not just technological artifacts. 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.
