Game production is the discipline that concerns the creation of a game product, and it encompasses its inception, creation, market release, evolution across multiple versions, maintenance, and retirement. This course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of how a game product is created, by considering different yet complementary aspects, including game concept, game design, requirements engineering, architectural reuse, business models, development, and testing.
The covered topics include:
Intended Learning Outcomes: by successfully attending the course, the student:
|Literature:||Will be provided throughout the course.|
|Course form:||Lectures, workshops, and a reading group for the students aiming at the top grades.|
In order to pass the course, the students will (i) conduct, in groups of two, a project where important activities of game production will be executed on a fictional game project; and (ii) individually take a midterm and a final exam.
The project counts 40% of the final grade, and will be delivered in two parts, each contributing equally to the final grade:
The remaining 60% of the final grade is obtained through the midterm exam (20%) and the final exam (40%).
In order to pass, at least two of the three components should be fully sufficient (6.0 or above).
Finally, in order to obtain a grade of 8.5 or above, the student has to attend the reading group, a weekly meeting where the students research upon and present topics at the intersection of software engineering and games. Attending the reading group can give a bonus of up to 1 point on the final grade, and requires actively attending all reading seven groups and presenting one topic. If the participation in the reading group is not rated satisfactory, the maximum final grade will be 8.0.
