June 23, 2017

DMS 120 Flyer

In this course, students will learn how to approach the digital game medium with a critical eye for game design. Through reading about, discussing, writing about and playing digital games, students will become literate in meaningful play. Students will gain understanding of important game design elements such as interactivity, challenge, games as systems (cybernetic, emergent, conflict), genre, and setting. Eventually, students will work on designing, and then developing, their own digital game using an engine called GameMaker.

DMS has made an exception, and this course may be used as a Technology & Production course within the DMS curriculum.
