Game Media Production IV
Course No. GAME 421 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Robert Lauer
The course is designed to act as a summative experience, designed to focus student attention on the continuing production development of your BFA Thesis game project. Advisement, lectures and demonstrations to help troubleshoot, solve and increase understanding of the game development and programming process will support student project outcomes. Game industry standards of debugging, game testing, risk assessment, and troubleshooting design issues through production development will be key for student understanding while developing their final game thesis project. The game project visualization and concept will be student driven; content needs to be determined by the student and research/collaboration with all faculty committee advisors. The choice of game concept, style, mechanics, re-playability and overall design/development will be evaluated in the course and in the final BFA Thesis exhibition and defense. This course serves to help the student with continued game production through advisement with faculty and appropriate demonstrations and game theory lectures as it relates to the appropriateness of the student games being developed. The faculty retains the right to supplement the course with additional readings, exams, and project exercises to increase understanding and awareness of game industry standards and preparedness. Offered spring.
