Game Design & Programming

Delving into both technology and creativity, Game Design & Programming immerses students into the game design industry. Students will study game design & theory, including critical thinking, story and game creation, scripting, game development tools, game physics, game environments, sounds and audio for games, functionality, and managing a game project. They use the design process as well as other skills (graphic design, programming, and music generation) to create a culminating video game. Game engine Unity will be used to package images, textures, sounds, music, media and programming code to into a final game product. Students should anticipate publishing a video game for public viewing.

“I will be double majoring in computer and software engineering because Central Campus helped me realize what I wanted to do. The classes offered in this area are amazing. They are challenging but still fun and the people are one-of-a-kind.”
