The Computer Games Design course introduces students to all the processes involved in the design and construction of computer games. Unlike some other courses, it does not just focus on one aspect. It covers the art and design aspects as well as the construction and development aspects of computer games. Students will be involved from the initial idea generation to making the final game. They work both individually and as part of a team.
The focus of the course is not on programming, hardware, or software training. Its main focus is on creativity, innovation, ideas generation, drawing and design, critical thinking, problem solving and passion for games. Yes, you will use wide range of software packages; yes, you will do coding; yes, you should know something about the gaming hardware. But all because you want to bring your creative game design ideas to life. There is a fine balance between theory and practice in this course.
This course prepares your for a potential careers as an art director, visualiser and designer in the computer games industry.
