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, developing skills to reveal new horizons of gaming. With help from your ex-industry mentors, you’ll gain the skills you need for employment or enterprise in a games and media context. Collaborating with other talented game-lovers, you’ll design your own AAA, indie or board games and see your ideas come to life.

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.
