Creating Video Games: A Free Online Course from MIT




Taught by Philip B. Tan, Richard Eberhardt, Sara Verrilli and Andrew Grant, Creating Video Games is an MIT course that "introduces students to the complexities of working in small, multidisciplinary teams to develop video games. Students will learn creative design and production methods, working together in small teams to design, develop, and thoroughly test their own original digital games. Design iteration across all aspects of video game development (game design, audio design, visual aesthetics, fiction and programming) will be stressed. Students will also be required to focus test their games, and will need to support and challenge their game design decisions with appropriate focus testing and data analysis."

You can watch the 27 video lectures in the playlist above, or find them on YouTube or MIT's website. Find the syllabus for the course here.

Creating Video Games will be added to our list, 1,300 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
