University of Arts London Games Design

University of Arts London Games Design

BA (Hons) Games Design will teach you how to take the software tools of games design and create new gaming experiences from concept to finished game.

You will be expected to explore code and programming, enabling you to translate an idea into playable prototypes and to use software to achieve your design goals rather than have software decide your creative direction.

Graphics development, storyboarding and the conceptual framework underpinning games design are covered in depth and you’ll focus on the challenges presented by the game, as defined by the rules of play. You will design and build dynamic systems, which develops player experience as mental processing, physical input, and emotional response.
