Video games occupy a very important place in people's lives. They encompass a series of perfectly aligned elements, providing not only a challenge for players, but a narrative that engages the imagination of young and old people alike. It is, therefore, not surprising that many should want to develop and design their own video games.
In this sense, when we talk about Video Game Design, we are actually referring to a broad process of creativity and the collaboration of various teams that will give life to a new game. Therefore, this work encompasses a series of activities such as: Character design, story, goals, rules, setting, among others. The aim is to define what the game will become and how to encourage the player to complete it.
For that reason, the most important companies are looking for designers who are creative, ingenious, possess great ideas and, above all, have a passion for video games. To enhance all this, this Postgraduate Diploma in Video Game Design has been developed to maximize, from an up-to-date and novel perspective, all the skills that will help students to face the challenge of developing such an important project from scratch.
First, the student will be introduced to the theory of video game design, covering those elements that engage players, such as challenges and gameplay. Then, we will proceed to write and illustrate a presentation document, which will contain each of the parts of the design: General idea, market, Gameplay, mechanics, levels, progression, game elements, HUD and interface. Finally, the role of Project Management for the development of video games will be presented.
