Course Aim

Implementation of the project gives the student knowledge in the various stages of game development, your own role and responsibility in the group with the interfaces between the various production tools and the roles of the team.

The student should be able to:

  • With broad knowledge in the field of computer game development, understand the system level, and apply knowledge of mathematics and science for specific issues.
  • Model, simulate, predict, and evaluate methods and algorithms for the components used in a computer game.
  • Identify the need for further knowledge and to continuously upgrade their skills. As shown by the inclusion of new concepts and solutions in the computer game.
  • Plan their own work in relation to other specialists and team members in a game development project.
  • Explain the various professional roles, elements, and their relationships and dependencies in a game development project.
  • Implement the technically important moments in the production of computer games.
  • Recognize and justify the ethical and social considerations made in the game's content.


During the course, students work in groups to produce a prototype computer game in a 3D environment. There should be separate moments of basic concept and design work, technologies, planning, production and delivery included.


The course is conducted in an environment that meets the requirements of a professional production. The technical conditions in the form of development and requirements for game elements/performance are presented before the start by the supervisor. Joint development on a game idea that is presented, compared with expectations and approved by the course supervisor at the start.


Evaluation occurs continuously during the course in the form of presentations and assignments, as well as a final statement in the form of written and practical presentation. This course can only be assessed through participation in the game development with similar conditions and implementation.
