Game Design

Course Description:

In this class, students learn the fundamentals of game design, how to integrate games into digital storytelling on behalf of media communication disciplines like journalism, advertising, and public relations. Students explore and evaluate game mechanics to engage audiences with news events, social issues, or on behalf of a client or product. The course begins with a survey of video games history and culture and by playing and analyzing existing games (commercial, learning, news, advertising and serious games) to develop an understanding of the methods and approaches for designing games. Students will design interactions that seek to open dialogue with audiences and explore issues of balance and perspective. Following the design studio model, we organize into teams and apply the design process, rapid content generation, iteration and prototyping, with an emphasis on designs that enhance audience engagement
