It combines a detailed understanding of computational media, including legal and commercial aspects, with hands-on experience in the creative process. There will be discussions with invited industry leaders in various subject areas. Students will have the opportunity to work as part of development teams and create working prototypes to understand the challenges and rewards of producing video games in a professional context. All students are expected to participate in an intensive Unity Hackathon session that runs the third weekend of each Spring term starting Friday at 1800 and ending Sunday at 1800.
