Create Expressive Video Games

Por: FutureLearn . en: , ,


Explore the theory and practise of creative computer game design

Anyone who’s played video games understands that designing them requires a complex blend of technical ability, creative skill, and theoretical knowledge.

On this course, you’ll learn both the artistry and technique needed to create brilliant games. You’ll discover how to critically analyse decisions in real games, and apply your knowledge to creating small games of your own after each lesson.

By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills to start constructing your own game project, or study video game design further.

This course is perfect for anyone looking for a career in games and game development, or who wants to be a video game designer. It would suit people with technical design experience, as well non-technical people who simply want to express themselves in a new artistic medium.

During the course we’ll be using Unity and Fungus. We’ll spend a bit of time on the Code Liberation Github, too.
