Game Media Production I (EP)

Course No. GAME 320  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Harrison Walsh | Jared Bendis

The course is a project driven course jointly offered between CIA and Case Western Reserve University. Students will form production teams and collaborate using their talents and expertise to develop a working prototype computer game: having an interactive and immersive experience. Students will take on roles of game producers, developers, programmers, and designers. You will learn to brainstorm, design documentation, assemble resources, create assets, implement the game design, and manage their individual tasks and collective project. The course introduces students to the contemporary challenges posed by the ever-changing technologies used to make and deliver video games on today’s sophisticated hardware. This course will bring together an interdisciplinary group of advanced undergraduate students to focus on the design and development of a complete, fully functioning computer game prototype. The student teams are given complete autonomy to design their own fully functional games from their original brainstormed concept and research to a playable finished prototype, i.e., from the initial idea through to the designed game brand. The student teams will experience the entire game development cycle as they execute their projects. An excerpt of example responsibilities include (but not limited to): creating a game idea, writing a story, developing the artwork, designing characters, implementing music and sound effects, programming and testing the game, and documenting the entire project with a formal “Design Document” and demonstration with oral presentation. Offered fall.
