Game Design Mechanics

Meeting timeCRNSession
TUESDAYS 3:40pm-4:55 pm 45784Full Term

From board, to card, to digital, we will closely examine multiple game forms and game play to understand what makes them work across subjects: historical, sociological, political, in an attempt to contextualize the varied uses of games today.┬áStudents will work in teams to develop puzzles to solve specific problems. Students will explore a variety of game mechanics to determine which mechanics will best support various narratives. This is not a lecture class, this will be an “active learning studio.”
