Introduction to Game Design

GMD 110
Description: What's the difference between an FPS and an RPG? Are discovery and exploration important in every style of game, or can they detract from a cool game concept? We answer these questions by examining genres in games and analyzing some of the gameplay styles associated with them. Then, once we've discovered strengths and weaknesses inherent to particular game styles, we'll develop skills necessary to formulate and evauluate our own original gameplay ideas.

Prerequisite: Game Design, CREM or Game Production Management majors only, or permission of Game Design Program Director.
