Title

Dynamic Roles in Production

Learning Outcome

Students learn production and post-production skills by polishing and completing a full slice (level or stage) of their game. This includes a major focus on playtesting and applying user feedback in an iterative process. Students apply and polish the principles of game feedback and game balance.

Title

Collaboration, Synergy, and Compromise
