The goal of this course is to introduce students to computer game production. This is not necessarily a technical issue especially as game production involves mostly non-technical work like creative audio, 3D and visual design, product management and planning, storyboarding & writing, and testing.
The course has already taken place in summer semester 2011, so you might take a look at the old web page.
Ther lecture is given in German, but slides and homepage are written in English. For assignments you can choose between German and English language.
All events take place in E.2.42
You course assignment is to build a game (level). Deliverables include:
If you decide to create a game level I recommend to use Little Big Planet (either 1, 2 or PSP). You can do your work within the tutorial. A limited number of PS3 and PSP Systems will be provided.
If you decide to build a game yourself I recommend to use a game engine or framework like libGDX, Jaws JS or MS XNA. Make sure your game project can be delivered in time (don't ask for the moon in your concept document).
In the intermediate presentation you should present your game concept and optionally a working first prototype. The final presentation should cover the final result, the video and the post mortem.
Each group has up to 5 minutes presentation time. Your slides (no more than 8) should focus on:
If there is already a working prototype we'd greatly appreciate a video or some screenshots. Bring the slides on a USB drive (PDF, PPT) or present with your own computer.
Each group has up to 12 minutes of presentation time. Your slides should focus on:
Bring the slides on a USB drive (PDF, PPT) or present with your own computer. If you present a LBP Level make sure you either put it online or you bring it along on a USB Stick.
Each group has to submit
until Monday, June 25th, midnight.
The final grade is based on (i) assignments handed out in the course (2-3), (ii) your project work and presentation and (iii) a multiple choice test.
Students have to enroll to the exam (one of two possible schedules):
