Games Design

With a couple of weeks left until the end of the block we’re tying up some loose ends before progressing onto the Media Assets unit. I’m not actually delivering the 3 NPA units as discrete entities, so we haven’t finished everything for Game Design yet, but we have started on work for Media Assets and Game Development, which balances out in the long run.

This week we’re making video reviews of games using Screenr. This is an alternative to writing a report on a game. The students analyse different aspects of a game, it’s narrative, interface, characters, gameplay and environment, but are doing so as a screencast instead of using a traditional written report.

Here’s an example I made to demonstrate Screenr.
