This course covers a foundation of topics necessary to good game design. Its objective is to orient students to the numerous perspectives a designer must understand: psychology, project management, marketing, entertainment, narrative, technology, and others. The course also introduces the concept of a game design document and the other methods of communication that designers use to reduce their ideas to practice.
Over the course of the term students will work on creating a game design using the concepts explored in class. Students will work in groups to develop a game concept and prototype for presentation and review by peers and industry professionals.
