Design Process and Video Game Design
In this unit, students will create a video game using an appropriate design process that includes a combination of graphics, images, and sound, and also requires technical documentation of the techniques used. The student will further demonstrate their knowledge of video game design by including a variety of computer hardware, software, and operating systems, and crafting the game so that it has cross–platform compatibility and can be shared via a variety of file sharing formats. The culminating activity for this unit will be the creation of the afore– mentioned video game and the sharing of that game with others. The game sharing will also include the opportunity for the evaluation of visual effects using the principles of the design process.ign
