Module overview

Building on your level 4 research, design and game making skills, this module will introduce a range of specialist game design skills in a series of workshops and activities that bring together your understanding of core skills you will employ to support Games Design Documentation. You will document your learning, process and the activities you undertake online, in a systematic and reflective manner.

You will learn to collate your research and concepts into an industry recognised practice, the creation of a digital Games Design Document (GDD). The process documentation and reflective outputs alongside your GDD will be presented in an online format suitable to best communicate your learning and the GDD, for example as an illustrated blog with associated materials.

The online documentation and GDD alongside any physical work will be your submission for assessment.

Your portfolio should consist of the GDD, process documentation and all studio work developed over the course of the semester, to include evidence of workshop and tutorial activities, all sketchbooks, research, annotation and preparatory material alongside outcomes as directed.
