Credits: 3 (3/0/0)
Description: In this game preproduction course, students will present a plan and pitch the genre and scope of a video game project. They will include the actual design, interactivity, theme, art style and possible project issues. Students will work in groups, decide what features will be included in the game and assign different tasks to each team member on the project. Students will also design and create their story and the assets needed in their project and will work as a team as if they were working in a commercial video game project. The focus of this course is to recreate an industry production workflow while concentrating on the aspects of character and environment creation, texture and lighting effects.
