Game Design as a STEAM Course

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The purpose of this workshop is to gain an understanding of Game Design as a STEAM course by introducing the many aspects of game design that come into play outside of actual programming. You will design a game guided by the “Hero’s Journey”, while making myriad artistic decisions about your game’s design. This process will be complemented by an introduction to “gamification” and the roles of games in society. Attendees will leave with greater familiarity of the process of game design and the layout of a game design course.
