Cross Cultural Game Development

Credit Hours: 3.00.  This course presents current methods of design and development of digital games for extra-cultural audiences. Students are instructed using an experiential learning model in which multi-cultural student teams lead independent game development projects targeted at a non-native cultural audience. Topics include: dimensions of cultural, game engine scripting, art asset utilization, ethnographic data collection methods, cross-cultural team building, cultural observation, and project management. This course is taught in the US but is co-taught as a distance learning course with a foreign partner institution. Students who take 28500 may not also take 28510 (the study abroad version of the course).  

This course is offered by the Department of Computer Graphics Technology
