As you progress through the course, you will explore multiple languages and look at developments and changes of systems within engines. You will also look into the latest technological updates to ensure you stay up to date with the industrial changes. You will explore and analyse Gameplay to understand the context of the work you are creating and to ensure you gain a deeper understanding of game creation. Reflecting industry practice we promote the use of agile workflows and promote events such as Game Jams and Game Societies.
