I really loved doing this course. Learnt how to make a simple game and make it really interesting! I loved how the easily the instructor was able to teach us and make us curious throughout the course.

The lecture videos from Professor Fran and his old friend were surprisingly entertaining. Kudos to the team because they were able to make it fun, informative, and engaging throughout the four weeks.

Simple, clean course that focuses beautifully on the core of what is being taught.
Also very enjoyable vibe to the instructor and the assignments; there's a puppet as a TA... enough said. :)

There's only peer review in this course, which didn't provide the evaluation on your actually level on design skill. It's really just a 4 weeks intro, super easy to achieve the full marks.

The course was fun and the progression through the weeks assignments was good. The contents were presented in a interesting way and were pertinent, but i would know a little more deeper.

Simple to follow, good for absolute beginners. Even if you find you are already familiar with some of the content, the course helps better articulate this understanding.

Funny introduction to game design. Not too serious, which I think is what some people need to loosen up and start with a playful mindset. (See what I did there?)

This course is nice. Well it doesn't make you a game designer haha, but it helps to broad your mind for sure. Thank you for making my brain working :)

The course is fun to learn. Great for beginners, it would have bee better if it could contain checklist for tasks like GDD, and other design docs etc.

Course that do not require lots of time but put your creative mind on work and push it truly far making a simple game detailing before its workframe.

It was a great course, It pointed to many essentials and basics of game's ideas.
It gives you the right way to think if you are going to make a game.

My only concern with the program is the classmate's feedback process. I really wish it was easier to give and get reviews, find other active* users.

An informative & fun introduction to video game design with hands-on assignments. It could've been more in-depth and specific, but I learned a lot!

I like what I viewed so far. It is great to learn the fundamentals of game design without having to worry about learning a programming language.

A nice course, with great content, but the Coursera plataform presented many flaws in key points, as the access to the feedbacks of peers...

Good course with good concepts but could do with a lot more depth. This course's content would be one week of content for other courses

Fun and quirky, but felt a little bit too basic and easy. Hopefully the rest of the courses in this capstone will account for that.

There were a few problems with the app interface especially in the peer review section but a great introduction really enjoyed it.

A good course, with the using of peer review as an instrument of continuous confrontation, but lacks support from the staff.

Simply give more literature, and some expert opinion about some interesting jobs of week.
There is no communication at all

A course with very clear, fun lectures. My only complaint is that I wish it had been a bit more detailed / complex.

It's pretty fun and indeed teaches the basics of game creation, however I found a bit simple.
