COURSE OBJECTIVES

Whilst studying the most relevant and successful video games projects, the course will focus on the guidelines that lead to the creation and development of a game project from scratch. Those theoretical tools will prove useful in creating game design documents and projects, as well as in implementing interactive game mechanics in media design, offering the students the chance to fully realize their own concepts while learning the basics of some of the most successful free development software packages like StencylWorks.

LEARNING OUTCOME

By the end of the course the students will be able to develop their own game design concept from a planning perspective and will have obtained the basics to create their own prototype with licence-free software available on the Internet.
