Experimental Game Engines: Prototyping, Development, Intercommunication

Georg Luif
Arts and Society, Experimental Game Cultures
2023W, scientific seminar (SEW), 4.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S04132

Description

This course explores fundamentals for building creative prototypes to answer artistic research questions, developing ideas further by using up-to-date game development techniques and interfacing your projects with other technologies.

We will use rapid iteration and in-class practice to build out the skills to test your creative ideas quickly and gain confidence in the process. Another aspect of the class is intercommunication - receiving inputs and outputting data into the real world.

This is an introductory class and welcomes little to no experience using Game Engines.

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