PLANNING THE GAME DESIGN WORKSHOP

  • Objectives and Deliverables

    Centre for Game Design and Computer Science Department, Lahore Garrison University (LGU) are excited to announce the Summer of Games 2018.

    Currently the market share is restricted to a small, insignificant part of Game Design while the crucial and more lucrative part is being done outside Pakistan.

    The most important objective is to enable our students to pass through all stages of Game Design: they should be able to create startups and instead of trying to find jobs after graduation they should be able to create and provide jobs to their class fellows. The workshop will span about four to six weeks; there will be some lecturing but most of the time students will be doing practical work: from Idea generation - to story boarding - to graphic design and interactivity - the marketing issues - the handling of the beta versions - all aspects would be covered in detail.

    This program comprises of four basic modules. The Game Design (Module 1), Game Development (Module 2) and Game Art (Module 3) would run in parallel so that participants working on their game could have a fully functional game judged by a panel of industry experts and last but not least Game Entrepreneurship (Module 4).

    The only deliverable of the workshop will be a Game for Impact. That is it is not only an entertainment and immersive game but some learning should also take place in the middle and high school science and mathematics.
