Intro to Digital Game Design

This class will introduce the basics of how to approach game design thinking (logic, motive, mechanics), which can be applied to video games or mobile games. Students will take their general game concepts and learn how to develop them further, walking away with plan of action for any ideas or concepts they had coming into the class.

We’ll learn how to finesse core gameplay and building a fun player experience. All skill levels are welcome! Class will be geared towards adults.

Concepts Covered:

-Overview of the Game Industry
-Overview of Game Design Theory
-Designing Game Mechanics
-Creative Development and Concepting
-Graphic Design in Games

Based on the interest of the class, a second session can be scheduled, where we can take these concepts and start building them out with software.
