Course Description:

Whether they’re on a table top, on a screen, or on the grass, we love games! They challenge us! They bring us together! They entertain and excite us! In Game Design we take on the role of game designers; and as designers, how can we create these memorable experiences? What can we learn by making new and fun games? In this course students will discover and develop a variety of industry skills as they utilize the design process to create and test their own games. So, what will you create?
