COURSE INTRODUCTION

Game design is the real heart of a videogame, the most creative, innovative and complex part of game development.

Game designer has a pivotal and strategic role and should have technical and artistic skills, a disposition for critical thinking, teamwork, creativity and team building. This way, game designer can communicate and collaborate more easily and effectively with project manager, narrative designer, level designer, artists and programmers, and gives life to concepts and ideas about the game that can lead to the development of a very high quality entertainment product capable of creating an emotional and psychological engagement with the players.

Our game design course is specifically thought for people who want to work in the game industry, analyze and further study all those aspects that make videogames an art form and expression, keeping an eye on the latest market data that show a very positive trend in Italy.
