Examiner:

Professor  Staffan Björk



Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Knowledge regarding simulation engines and game design.

Aim

The course aims at a deepened understanding of the central design issues in game design by means of practical training in design projects.

Content

The course deals with the design and implementation of computer-based games with focus on interaction. The increased popularity of computer games, as well as the widened use for games in non-entertainment areas, has made the need of a holistic view of interaction design within games central. This makes practical knowledge in game development increasingly useful within the entertainment industry, car and plane industries that use simulations, as well as virtual environments focused on learning.

Organisation

The project course is organized to run for a full semester at half speed. Project work is done in groups with supervision and results in interactive prototypes. Design documents have to be approved by supervisors before actual implementation work begins. The course assumes the ability and interest for independent design work.

Literature

Course literature is chosen in consultation with supervisor.

Examination

Written and oral presentation of project. At the end of the course, the design projects are presented at an exhibition.

Grading: F, 3, 4 or 5.
