Main activities




In order to do that, let's look at genres first. P102 has a
list. Action, rpg, strategy, etc...
The key is to find common features from different games
so that they can be placed into one group.
Read, Research to explainthe genres with examples and
images, in a report. Then create an A3 poster.
Read, Research about platforms. Then create an A3
poster.
A game usually start from an idea from someone. At this
stage, it could be just one person or a few. Then after
deliberation and analysis, a project plan is devised. At
this stage there are usually senior managers and financial
backers involved. Then Design of the project - done by
the team leader and system analyst. Afterwards a team
of experts are put together to develop the game -
implementing the design. They need to do testing as they
go along. Then system testing will be carried out in house
by none-developers. Before publishing Beta testing - user
testing is best done by selected members from the
public.

now let's have a volunteer to report back to the class.
Then collect the names of the games mentioned. As
you can see there are many games. Some are more
popular than others. In this unit you will learn how to
develop computer games like a professional.
You will be required to develop a working game of
adequate complexity.

genre: type, category of art or literature. Originated
from French.
platforms - console, PC, mobilephone, etc...




Apart from the concerns, benefits and drawbacks,
there are psychological factors to be considered. They
are used to make the games more addictive and more
engaging. They, as a result, have huge impacts on the
players and the society. What shouuld you do? anlyse
and create a presentation.
Use of sound to create an atmosphere, short and quick
sound for tension building, slow and pleasant sound
for friendliness. High score listing - peer pressure and
human combative nature....
That is the whole lifecycle of game development - the
professional way to minimise crucial failures from
start.
Today, you will list three different game ideas that you
think will make you proud. It could the ones make
millions of pounds or do what your heart likes.
Then pick one of them to write down briefly the main
idea - high concept - brief explanation of the game
idea.
then write 200-300 words of promtion pitch to get
support from your boss and financial backers.
Then design the storyboard using the template
provided. In the column to the right of the storyboard,
describe the games in words. In the "pseudo code"
column attempt the pseudo code.




The basic skills are listed in sheet_1.




The following terms must be copied and understood.
IDE, statement, variable, vasriable declaration,
function, function declaration, event, event listener, ....

How to achieve interactivity?
Demonstrate interaction
The events are predefined. (experienced programmers
could define their own events). These events are given
names - ENTER_FRAME, KEY_DOWN, KEY_UP,
MOUSE_OVER, CLICK, etc.
The principle is to set up the listener, the listener is
registered with the engine, when the engine tells the
listener it happened, the listener will instruct the
program to do something.

Good practices - modular structure, use of comments,
use of functions, indentation, layout ....

Every year applications are passed on to nuiversities.
Admission officers and admission tutors will read through
applications first. The first thing to read is usually the personal
