Games have become ubiquitous in our modern world. In addition to entertainment, elements of games are present in everything from promotional advertisements to university classrooms. This course focuses on the exploration of game design in its many permutations. Join us as we critique and design all manner of entertainment and serious game. The class itself is designed as a multiplayer game experience to immerse and engage the student in game design on a fundamental level.
