Publisher Comments:

Video Game Design Composition provides students specific coverage of video game design in a second-year curriculum. The teaching package provides curriculum “in a box”—all of the resources needed to teach a video game design class are included. This turnkey curriculum is a complete guide to immersion in the field, from beginning each game build project through completion, integration, and marketing.
  • Full-year curriculum.
  • Integrated second-year curriculum: theory and application.
  • Each chapter includes STEM, portfolio, teamwork, Common Core, and event prep activities.
  • Fully functional game engine provided in the software design guide.
  • Aligns with the International Game Developers Association (IGDA)– recommended educational framework.
  • Detailed scope and sequence chart outlines each day’s activities for student and instructor.

Video Game Design Composition is specifically designed for a high school second-year video game design class. Content and game builds are age appropriate, and learning is focused on the skills students need to prepare for college and career.

Synopsis:

The Software Design Guide (SDG) provides the hands-on application of the theory presented in the textbook. The SDG should be considered an integral part of the curriculum. It is where students take the theory learned in the textbook and use that knowledge to build video games. Working in simulated design teams, students will experience all aspects of video game design, from the planning stages, through the design and programming, and concluding with a capstone project.

Each chapter in the SDG is correlated to the textbook chapter. There are several activities for each chapter. The last chapter in the SDG is a capstone project that requires students to apply all of the knowledge acquired in the textbook and SDG. Includes game Engine Software.
