Semester(s) Offered: Spring
Course Call Number: GAMES-UT 123
Taught By: Bennett Foddy
Game Development: Solo Studio focuses on the development of a single digital game. Students will work alone over the course of the semester to brainstorm, prototype, and develop a single digital game for web browsers. The philosophy of the class is learning through doing, and students will spend the bulk of their time through the semester working on the design, code, art and sound of their game, guided by feedback from instructors and students. At the end of the semester, each student will have produced a finished, releasable digital game.
The course meets twice per week. The lecture meeting will be used for training in the game engine, discussion and critique, along with some structured exercises and visits from external critics. The lab focuses on solo work time, including some oneonone meetings with the TA and the instructor. Students should expect to put in 10 hours of work per week outside of these meetings.
