by Tufts University

How do you create a complete computer / video game from start to finish? What are the different elements to a game? What makes a great game? Computer game development requires all facets of computer science, including computer graphics, artificial intelligence, algorithms, data structures, networking, and human-computer interaction. It also requires knowledge of other disciplines including economics, mathematics, physics, and psychology. The value of this course goes beyond culminating computer science. It is largely a hands-on course where real-world skills including design, teamwork, management, documentation, and communications are critical. This course will delve into topics such as the game engine, rendering, user interfaces, sound, animation, and game hacking. This course will also cover designing MMORPGs and mobile games.
