À propos du cours

Welcome! This course is an introduction to the primary concepts of gaming, and an exploration of how these basic concepts affect the way gamers interact with our games. In this course you will understand what defines a “game” and the mechanics and rules behind different types of games. Through four linked assignments you'll learn ways to create and describe a game concept, and specifically what makes a compelling game. This course focuses on the conceptual underpinnings of games, and all assignments can be completed with a pencil and paper – no previous programming knowledge is required....

Great introductory course! Everything is very well explained and you really feel how your project develops through the week. I expected it to be a bit more technical and less theoretical, but everything is still very well made

Это было полезно и познавательно. Подача материала очень простая, но при этом я узнала много новых вещей о геймдизайне. Программирование в курсе не нужно! Вы просто знакомитесь с азами создания механики игры, ее нарратива.

It was very fun to come up with ideas to create game design papers to giving my ideas I learned to limit it which is a good thing because Ideas might become overwhelming and make your design not so coherent. I loved it!!!

The instructor clearly loves his job, the back-and-forth between the instructor and the puppet made it easier to follow the lesson, very entertaining and enlightening. The assignments were fun as well, I learned a lot.

Fran (and his furry friend!) make this course engaging and fun to watch. They cover lots of aspects of game design in a thoughtful and multilayered way. I could definitely have done more than 4 weeks' worth of class!

The course is incredibly well done, the video lessons are great, the teacher is very good and the students are participative. The only thing that got a bit behind was a deepening, although the tasks were laborious.

I enjoyed the teacher. He made the class interesting. He introduced interesting concepts and made them enjoyable for the class. The class made me dabble in art which something I wish I could do more. Thank you!

Was an exceptional course - maybe a bit basic and the people marking were not very useful. But the information given from Fran was beyond anything I've ever expected - it gives me a new lens to look through

It was fun learning here :) I believe the course was also gamified and therefore I was encouraged to pursue to the end!

I highly recommend this course.
