Course summary

Are you passionate about game design? Do you often think games could be better? Are you curious about what makes games engaging and meaningful? At Falmouth, you'll work with programmers and artists in a studio environment to make innovative and arresting games.

Introduction

We'll cover specialist areas in storytelling and design to reveal new horizons of gaming. With help from ex-industry mentors, you'll gain the tools you need for a career in games and media. Collaborating with other talented game-lovers, you'll bring your own ideas to life in AAA, indie or board games.

What you'll learn

Pitching and prototyping your ideas, you'll become a specialist in game design and the broader games industry context. And by the second study block you’ll be doing it for real, developing a game in a team and following it up with a major project in the final term. This could be solo, group-based or a research piece.

How you'll learn

There’s no formal essay writing on this course - you’ll be learning the real-life skills needed to produce a co-created full game project and a professional portfolio for grading. And with regular feedback and support from your mentors, you’ll develop your game design skills in a way that boosts your progress.

You'll learn through:

  • Workshops
  • Playtesting ideas
  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Crit sessions
  • Tutorials
  • Guest speakers
  • Mentoring

How you'll be assessed

Game Design is a practise-focused course, so you’ll only be assessed on your coursework. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.
