Overview

Interested in the idea of making the next best-selling games app? Want to create cross-platform games and learn about every area of their production? This course helps you master the diverse range of skills required from the indie developer working on your own or in small teams. You’ll have the opportunity to develop an area of specialism and generate a portfolio of work to show potential employers and backers.

As well as learning about game design, 2D and 3D asset creation, drawing and programming, we will also look at how to make money from your creations, how to manage your business and successfully market your games.

A growing sector

As media and computing advances, so too do the careers in this sector. The growth is being fuelled by the availability of inexpensive commercial grade development tools, and simple third party digital marketing options. Combined with an increase in demand for a wider variety of games, the opportunities for independent game developers are increasing.

Every element of the game development process

During this course, you’ll develop game assets from conception through to production. You’ll tackle the design issues faced when building games for mobile and discover how to implement game play through scripts.

As the course progresses, you’ll build on your creative skills and improve your programming ability. As you master new technologies used within Artificial Intelligence, you’ll implement advanced game design techniques into your games projects.

Working on both individual and team based projects, you’ll be given the opportunity to specialise in an area of particular interest. Beyond the creation of exciting new games, you’ll also take business and marketing modules. The entrepreneurial skills acquired in these modules will ensure you have the knowledge to exploit your creative talents to the full.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the course will be well placed to pursue a career within the growing games and media sectors as independent developers working on their own or within small teams. Some graduates may go on to be employed within a larger studio or work freelance as specialist game designers, artists or programmers.
