The Introduction to Video Game Design micro-course will give you an overview of the early development pipeline of a video game.
You will learn how every video game starts out, from creating a Game Design Document and concept art, through to making the first rough block-out of a game level in a suitable game engine and testing the game mechanics and player experience. You will learn about level design, industry standard practices, and the role of the narrative structure – how storytelling can help create a sense of immersion in video games.
By the end of the micro-course, you will have made your first steps into the world of game design and development.
The course is open to everyone who has an interest in video games and how they are made.
