Telecommunications | Theory & Practice of Game Design

This course teaches you to make games. During class we will
be analyzing sophisticated, challenging, and fun games like Settlers
of Catan and Dominion. Students will use insights from these games
to make their own games. We will have Game Design Challenges where
students form groups to tackle a game design problem on the fly.
Students will also form groups to make a major game project, which
can be a video game if desired. STUDENTS INTERESTED IN CAREERS IN
THE GAME INDUSTRY ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO TAKE THIS CLASS AS
EARLY AS POSSIBLE. The only way to get an industry job is to make
games, and this class will connect you to other students so you can
get some games on your resume. The class is good for other students,
too, because the skill of making games is becoming more and more
important. Web, TV, movies, public relations, management,
advertising - Games are everywhere! So take this class to buff up
your gamecrafting skills.

Class meets 11:15am - 12:30pm MW.
