Games Design
Computer and video games are the fastest growing, most exciting art form of the 21st Century. On this course, you will come up with game ideas to engage the players of the future, and learn the skills to make these ideas reality. You will be introduced to the practical skills involved in Games Design and gain an understanding and knowledge of the skills required to work in the industry. You will produce your own games and gain a deep understanding of why existing games work (or, sometimes, don't work). You will produce 2D and 3D games, develop game story ideas and work to real world deadlines. You will also design and animate computer game graphics and game assets (levels, characters and props) using 3D software.
The course is based around the use of industry-standard software, such as Flash, Maya, Illustrator and Photoshop are used, on both PC and Apple Macintosh...
