Modern video games are incredibly complex multimedia productions involving still and motion graphics, code, audio, interface elements, narrative elements and much more.
In this course, you will learn how and where all these pieces come from, who’s in charge of each piece and the different stages of the game design process. We will also show you how everything is brought together to create a final product.
What you'll learn:
- How the different elements within a video game are created
- How video game assets are created differently than other media products
- How the assets come together and who’s responsible for making all the pieces work together
- How a video game gets “polished” into a shipping product
- Price $49 for verified track. No charge for audit.
