Course summary

This course is advertised subject to validation by Middlesex University.Explore your love for games and become part of a thriving global industry. If your ambition is to make games, then this course builds the skills you need to fulfil that dream and carve out a career in gaming.Whether you want to be a programmer, a designer, an artist, or sound designer, you can put your knowledge into practice with fellow students. You’ll make completed, publishable games, using an interdisciplinary approach that distinguishes ACM's course from the rest. You’ll gain exactly the type of experience needed for employment in the games industry or to start up your own independent game development studio.As a Game Development student, you’ll learn about the commerce, theory and design of digital games. This knowledge is complemented by the development of skills that are gained in your specialist area (art, audio, design or programming). Most significantly you’ll work in groups to make complete games at every level of the course.As you progress and in true ACM style, project teamwork will be at the heart of your learning experience, as recommended by the creative industry. You'll also be paired with an expert Mentor, who'll offer a unique insight into the industry and help you build contacts.If working out the rules, systems, puzzles and challenges that shape a player's experience in a game is what you get excited about, then Game Development: Design is for you. You'll graduate having had extensive experience as a game designer from paper concept to the finished article, with a portfolio of completed games on which you have worked closely with all the other development team disciplines. No specific subject area is required for this route in terms of previous qualifications, but a good, passionate understanding of games and the ability to understand and interpret software is advantageous.
