Course Modules


Game Design and Documentation

GD401: Game Design and Documentation

This module involves training students in the important processes and methodologies that are required in games development. Game design concepts will comprise of Level Design, Character Design and Game Balance. Students will learn to understand the development team that is required and their responsibilities. The studies will involve the detail understanding of the different game genres and their characteristics. Students will learn how to do documentation for games development namely the initial concept, the treatment and detailed design document. The documentation process will include the use of software engineering tools and concepts.


C# and 2D Game Development

GD405: C# and 2D Game Development

The use of industrial standard game engines will be introduced in this module so that students can develop a complete game. Students will experience the use of a rapid application type of game engine. Emphasis will be on the sequencing of game play logic such as the condition, events and actions required in a game. The module will require the students to go through the game development process and complete a full 2D game. Assessment will focus on the elements that are important for a typical 2D game anatomy. Students will also explore the development of the different types of games genres.


Mobile Games Development

GD406: Mobile Games Development

In this module, students will study the issues and concerns that are related to mobile games development. Focus will be given to design considerations for mobile games development for multiple platforms. Others topics will include technologies, quality of game engines and optimization techniques for mobile game development. Students will also be taught to develop a game using the game engines and experience the full implementation and testing of the mobile game on target devices.



GD409: Project

The Game Development Project tasks the student to review the game development fundamentals mastered from the various modules and apply the necessary skills in the creation of a game. Students are expected to monitor all aspects of the project, ensure that proper knowledge and resources are harnessed to create the desired outcome in a timely, cost-effective manner. Students will also devote most of their time in the research and design of the original mobile game.
