Games Design teaches you the key technical and creative skills needed to produce indie videogames for computer, mobile and console. You’ll gain an in-depth knowledge of games-design tools (such as GameMaker Studio), design and development processes, aesthetics, and the relationships between industry, players and designers. The course is taught in the Daphne Oram building, our exciting new Creative Arts facility, where you’ll have access to industry-standard software to produce a range of games. Dr Alan Meades, an internationally renowned games scholar, leads a team of games industry practitioners and academics who are all as passionate about gaming as you are.
