    1. IMGD 1001The Game Development Process Mark Claypool

    2. Topics • Background • Topics • Course Materials • Motivation

    3. Professor Background (Who am I?) • Dr. Mark Claypool (professor, “Mark”) • Computer Science • CS3103 Operating Systems • CS4513 Distributed Computer Systems • Research interests • Networks, Multimedia, Network games, Performance

    4. Student Background (Who Are You?) • Year (freshman, sophomore, …) • Major (IMGD (Art or Tech), CS, HUA, …) • Programming Classes • Gamer: (casual) 1 to 5 (hard-core) • Number of Games Built (zero is ok) • Other …

    5. What Do You Think Goes Into Developing Games? • Choose a game you’re familiar with • Assume you are inspired (or forced or paid) to re-engineer the game • Take 3-4 minutes to write a list of the tasks required • Chronological or hierarchical, as you wish • Include your name of game and your name • (I’ll collect and read, but not grade) • Trade write-ups with another student • What do we have?

    6. Syllabus Stuff http://www.cs.wpi.edu/~claypool/courses/1001-C06/ • Office hours: • TBA (about 3 per week each) • See Web page • Email: • {claypool,flashine,jbd} at cs.wpi.edu • id111x-ta at cs.wpi.edu • id111x-all at cs.wpi.edu

    7. Course Materials • Slides • On the Web • PPT and PDF • Caution! Don’t rely upon the slides alone! Use them as supplementary material • (come to class) • Timeline • Tentative planning • Resources • Game creation toolkits, documentation, etc.

    8. Text Books • The Game Development Process • By lots of people, edited by Steve Rabin • Close to course material, required for this class • 1000 pages! But good reference • Game Architecture and Design - A New Edition • by Andrew Rollings and Dave Morris • Heavily used last year (in id111x) • On Game Design • by Andrew Rollings and Ernest Adams • Some solid game design material • Designing Arcade Computer Game Graphics • by Ari Feldman • Creating 2D art for games • Creating the Art of the Game • by Matthew Omernick • Creating 3D art for games

    9. Prerequisites None! Neither Programming nor Art In-Class Lecture Discussion Exams Out-of-Class Reading Projects Grading Exams (45%) Projects (45%) Other (10%) Course Structure (More on Exams and Projects, next)

    10. Exams • 2 exams • 45% of grade • Non-cumulative • Closed-note • Closed-paper • Closed-friend • One-page “crib-sheet” (handwritten)

    11. Projects (1 of 2) • About 5 projects • 45% of your grade • Groups (3 is good, 2 or 4 are possible) • Apply concepts taught in class • Related to Game Development • Build upon each other • Should have working game at end!

    12. Projects (2 of 2) • Project 1: Game Inception and Design • Inspiration of a game, design and documentation • Project 2: Content Creation • Create 2-d animated sprites (or other art) and select supporting content • Project 3: Game Logic • Implement game objects and game rules • Project 4: Level Design • Put above components together in compelling game • Project 5: Game Evaluation and Testing • Critique each other’s games • Project pitch • To panel of experts

    13. Game Design The Creative Process Design Documentation Artistic Content Creation Color and Displays 2D and 3D Graphics Animation Audio Music Sound Effects Engineering Game Architectures Programming Team Management Misc Release Postmortem Topics
