How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Game Design course?

Eye for Detail

Coming with new ideas for games is easy. It’s translating that into code and then a playable game that’s the difficult part. Game designers need a keen eye for detail, as even one line of code gone wrong can spell disaster.

Jack of all Trades

Will you need to learn to code? Yes. Will you need to draw? Yes. No, don’t run away, come back! It may all seem daunting, but a games designer needs to learn many skills to save time and produce the best possible product.

Passionate

Sure, everyone LOVES playing games, it’s a ton of fun. But what about actually creating them? It’s a whole different ball-park when it comes to game designing, and only talented and passionate people make it big here.
