Course Call Number: GAMES-GT 410
The democratization of game-making tools in the last few years has lead to an explosion of new games and digital artwork. This proliferation has not only produced many games that follow conventional approaches to design, but also a collection of artists and work that exists outside of the usual channels of commercially minded development. While many games are created with an eye towards what will play well to the market, public opinion, and critical taste, these creators producer work molded instead by their own specific aesthetic; their own idiosyncratic games. This course invites students to explore the work of these often little-known creators, learn from them, and incorporate the varied and diverse ideas they find into their own games.
