This unit aims to provide students an appreciation of what it means to be a games designer. Students will explore the process of games design and apply key concepts including gameplay mechanics, rule design, play mechanics, game balancing and play testing in implementing a game. Students will also learn how to document a game design, apply professional standards and deliver an industry quality pitch for their game. This is a very hands-on unit, where students will create and implement a games design and critique their peers’ creations to determine how best to create a game experience for specific audiences. In the process of creating games students will be required to use a variety of software technologies including industry-standard games engines. While prior programming experience would be beneficial, it is not a prerequisite to study this unit.
