Games Design Level 2 (17/18)

The level 2 games design course covers the design and development of a 2D game using a games engine. You will look into designing levels as well as adding sounds into your game. You will study the games industry to find out about development companies and game design elements used in the industry. The focus will be on story and character development for games, developing a comic to show a section of your game design story. There are plenty of opportunities to practice and improve your drawing techniques as the course covers the design of promotional material for your game design. You will be able to use digital drawing software and a graphics tablet, as well as traditional drawing methods, to be able to design your products. You will be expected to design and think creatively quite often on this course. Drawing skills are not essential but we’d expect you to work on these skills throughout the year so that you are comfortable at presenting your ideas in a visual way.
