COURSE: GAME AESTHETICS

Choosing the most appropriate language to express a game design idea is just as important as selecting the most effective technology, or the right marketplace. GAME AESTHETICS provides an introduction to aesthetics in contemporary game development, from interaction dynamics to visual style. It explores all aspects of representation in games - from simulation to abstract play, from photo-realism to low-poly art, from digital expressionism to radical punk aesthetics - providing students valuable experience using various languages, strategies, and methods that can be applied to their projects. The instructor will provide useful reference and will assists students in identifying and achieving their unique style.
