Bachelor of Game Design and Development

Billy Blue College of Design

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 03389E

There are some people making games who will tell you it’s all about the underlying premise, the stories told or even the mechanics. It’s all lies. People love games because of the art, and that’s where you’ll come in. This course is designed to help you develop both your artistic style and technical skills, so you can decide whether you’re more interested in a throwback-EGA aesthetic or disturbingly hyper-real uncanny valley gear. Or something in between, maybe. Whatever the case, you’ll be working on industry-standard software alongside industry-standard experts to create beautiful environments, ugly environments, average-looking characters and breathtakingly gorgeous characters as assets for the immersive experience that is gaming. We focus on employability as well as honing your talent, so prepare to be drilled on people skills and professionalism as well as how to capture refracted light in a pixel-art potion of healing and suchlike. Thanks to the partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE), students will develop games for PlayStation® platform through the PlayStation® First Academic Development Program. So make sure you know your O from your B, if you get what we’re saying.
