Course Description

In Computer Game Design students design and make a 2D game using Unity 3D.

With some focus on design, students look at what elements go into a ‘good’ game art work, music and programming.

They research, play and analyse existing games and use this to inform the creation of their own game.

In this course students go through a pre-production, production and post-production stage.

Before making their 2D game, they workshop and develop concepts and decide what genre and type it will be (platformer, single player, multi-player, etc). Students learn to use C# coding in Visual Studio during the production stage.

They also create and/or source the components for the game, from the characters to the sound.

This involves learning to produce digital art in Photoshop.

During the post-production stage, students test each other’s 2D games and provide feedback giving the opportunity for further improvement.
