Course Outline / Syllabus
Created through This is a Project Based Learning outline for a introductory class in Video Game Development that was ran in the Spring 2019 semester at Norco College. This outline focuses on the development of a vertical slice video game prototype with no previous skills and showcases several common disciplines and careers that can be found in the video game development industry. This project asks the students the question, "What does it take to make a good commercial video game?" and exposes them to what that it takes work and not just playing video games. We address artistic concerns, technical, communication, team organization, and business concerns that all go into the development for this project. By the end they will have a experience and information that can shape their choices for educational or career directions going forward.
