About the Course

The subject of game design focuses on how rules and game components can be used to create game environments that encourage and promote specific interaction, either between humans or humans and the game systems. In this course you will deal with general design methods that can be applied to all these areas.

You will get an understanding of how the different components in a game environment interacts as well as what relations game design has to other areas, i.e. programming and graphical design, which are required in the development of modern interactive simulations.

The course is based around exercises and projects within the subject area which are complemented with lectures and workshops. Project work takes places in supervised groups and aim to give practical training in the development and modifications of game design.
