Game Design Education
Game Design is about describing the world within which the game is played. This could be a futuristic first-person shooter or a strategy taking place in the Middle Ages. Game Design defines everything from the story to the game mechanics, i.e. how the player interacts with the world around them.
Depending on the size of the studio or project, game designers can work on major or particular tasks. A major task would be the world design – the game’s backstory, setting and overall end goal. A more specific task would be the battle design i.e. the ways characters fight and under what conditions they win or lose.
The overall aim of all programs at ARC Academy is to build the skills needed to become a successful member of a game studio. Our classes are taught by professionals with years of experience. The teaching process is interactive and mostly practice-oriented. That is why students can rely on being given regular and personalized feedback. The highlight of the program is the final semester when students from all programs (Game Design, Concept Art and 3D Art) come together to create a game prototype with a studio producer.
