Course summary

Game Development- Writing

Continue your writing as a game designer and narrative specialist. Previous English qualifications or writing work will give you a good foundation. Create back stories, dialogue, quest texts and story arcs as you learn essential creative writing skills and investigate how these can translate to gaming. You’ll work as a narrative designer in a multi-disciplined development team and contribute as a specialised developer.


You’ll learn how all the specialisms work together, how to work effectively in a team and the role you play in it. The course simulates how the industry operates and its methodologies in a studio environment that is built to mirror a real games development studio.

You will:

  • Build your own games from day one and can establish your own company in your third year.
  • Can change the games industry by making games for new markets and not simply replicating what’s already out there.
  • Have the option to change your specialism at any point in your first year.
  • Work in a department dedicated to gaming and be surrounded by people working in all aspects of the industry.
  • Develop a multi-disciplinary approach, touching on all aspects of game creation, and make completed games.

Assessment methods

  • Teamwork features heavily to reflect the industry.
  • Game making is the primary form of assessment.
  • Continuous assessment with no formal examinations.
  • Visual, verbal and written assignments.
  • Portfolio of project work.
