Course Description: 

In Transformational Game Design Studio, you will work in teams to make games that address three real-world problems. Each project will involve collaborating with a real-world client who has a stake in you addressing their problem. Topic areas include educational games, games for health, and games for the workplace. During the design process you will learn about research that can inform your design, about the craft of game design and development, and about prototyping methods for games. Prototoypes will be primarily non-digital, but may integrate off-the-shelf technologies such as phone cameras. No programming experience required.
