SGD202 Video Game Analysis and Design

Videogames are complex systems of representation. As cultural artefacts, videogames function as media texts serving to represent and produce cultural phenomena. This course examines the form and function of videogame texts and considers the impact of their cultural, historical, and industrial contexts. The course develops a comprehensive understanding of videogame aesthetics, and these combine with principles of game design to create meaning. You will engage and apply theoretical concepts on games, design, and production, to acquire skills needed to critically analyse and design games.
