NEWS: RAIGAN BURNS JOINS THE M.A. PROGRAM IN GAME DESIGN AT IULM UNIVERSITY

COLL.EO

YES INDEED: THE CO-FOUNDER OF METANET SOFTWARE, RAIGAN BURNS, IS TEACHING A BRAND NEW COURSE IN THE M.A. PROGRAM IN GAME DESIGN AT IULM UNIVERSITY, GAME LIT (AS IN “LITERACY”).

Raigan Burns is a programmer and game designer with a background in computer science, philosophy, and cinema studies. He is the other half of Metanet Software Inc., a boutique game developer founded in Toronto in 2001 that produced the acclaimed series N, N+, and N++. His games focus on revisiting the great designs of the past and re-evaluating them from a fresh perspective, making games which are engaging, innovative, intriguing and most importantly: fun. Raigan's obsessions include electronic music, emergent behaviour, systemic game design, the rehabilitation of the term roguelike, and cats. Read more about Raigan’s projects here.

GAMES LIT is a short course that exposes students to a range of novel game designs and styles in order to develop basic literacy, in terms of both game design and knowledge of the field. A variety of games will be explored via play, guided discussion, and critical analysis. The works covered are exclusively independently developed, predominantly from solo or 2-person teams; beyond ensuring that students are well-read in contemporary independent games, this course is also designed to show students what tiny teams with limited resources can - and can't - accomplish.
