Game Design

10/26/17  |  Posted by LeAnn Troutner  |  Posted in Digital Creativity

Game design students create games of all different kinds, not just digital, but board games, card games, die games, and more. The students work with productive creative processes such as 3D modeling, animation, programming, visual design, audio, interactive storytelling, and game production and theory. While creating interesting and usable content, you’ll build character development skills through coursework that analyzes and synthesizes physical, cognitive, cultural, and political aspects of human interaction.

As a Game Design student, you will:

  • Improve your character development abilities

  • Master the use of rule design, play mechanics, and social game interaction

  • Integrate visual, audio, tactile, and textual elements into a total game experience

  • Create both linear and non-linear media by applying post-production techniques

Additionally, you will learn how to create 3D modeling digital visualizations that use processing, organic and inorganic modeling, construction of compound objects, 3D primitive construction and modeling, and resolution and tessellation of 3D objects and formats.

Those who graduate with degrees in game design can obtain careers in storyboard art, animator, layout artists, special effects supervisor and game designer.
