Advanced game project

This game project class will allow the students to work in a fictional games company. They will assume different roles and be responsible for delivering a completed medium sized game. Throughout the process they will learn about the different roles and responsibilities in a game company as well as how the actual development process works.

By the end of the class they should have a decent grasp of what it feels like to work in a real games company and they will end up with a very polished game that they can save and share with others.
