Game Design

Have you ever experienced what it feels like to be a cat?

Battled in the frontlines of WWII?  Dove beneath the surface of an alien sea?  If you’ve ever played What Remains of Edith Finch, Call of Duty or Abzū, you have.  Video games offer us extraordinary virtual experiences from the comfort of our own desks.

And it’s not just shooters and plumbers anymore.

Games like Stories Untold prove that a simple concept can often be the most engaging.  Our Game Design courses offer our students the chance to turn their passive interest in video games into an ACTIVE one.

We teach everything
