2022W, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S04132

Description

This course explores the fundamentals for building creative prototypes to answer artistic research questions, developing ideas further into stable applications and interfacing your projects with other languages (such as Python).

Through examples and practical exercises we will develop a basic knowledge of working with Game Engines as well as how we can use them more experimentally.

The language of the course will be English, although assistance may be provided in German if necessary.

Please be aware: currently, registrations from students of "Experimental Game Cultures" program will be prioritized.
