This studio subject focuses on the practical aspects of game design and development. It teaches students how to design, develop and implement a game based on client specifications. Students examine the game mechanics for multiple indie and experimental games in developing their own game mechanics. A player-centric approach to design is used where new ideas are tested continuously with end users. Students work in teams taking on roles similar to those found in game development companies. They work independently under supervision and with guidance but are ultimately responsible for the final project delivery and presentation.
