Course Overview

The Game Design Foundations course will teach students how to develop a game from initial concept to playable demo.

Using the Unity 3D game engine or Unreal Engine, art and scripts students design gameplay mechanics and refine them while learning the entire development pipeline.

The Game Design Foundations course teaches students best practice for iterative game design and emphasises the importance of player feedback. Students will create game design documentation and implement game mechanics through a series of rapid prototypes. Based on player feedback and play testing, the technical mechanics are refined to create a fun and engaging game.
