Design, develop and turn your games into a business.

Game Design and Development is a curriculum designed to provide skills for both mobile and PC games development as well as starting up your own game company. Though the curriculum allows for specialisation in game graphics or games software development, main emphasis is on gameplay, game mechanics and monetisation model design. 

Game Design and Development is suited for someone who has a deep interest in games and a wide array of hobbies. The most important part is that you have the habit of looking past the gameplay. If you find yourself analysing the games you play, this is the curriculum for you. If you have prior graphics or programming skill to bring with you, even better.

Game design is a great place to find an outlet for the seemingly exclusive interests - the artistic programmer or a musician graphics artist. A game designer is a core member of the team, a specialist for developing great game mechanics and captivating gameplay. A game designer is well-versed in software development, computer graphics and business thinking.

Student projects

Taivo Seppa, one of our students finished a game this year called VRekken. It is a physics driven beat 'em up and self-defense trainer built for VR. You can use your punches, melee weapons (and kicks if you have 2 additional trackers) to beat up the bad guys. If you have been learning martial arts you can use your skills to your advantage.
