What is game design?

Game Design is the discipline focused on creating playful experiences for different types of audiences. Those who wonder how to be a game designer, the answer is simple, making video games! Each theoretical and professional school will find its focus on different aspects of design, there will be those who are oriented to specific genres or forms of presentation such as Arcades, Mobile Platforms, PC or Consoles.

In the Game Design course you will be able to create, design and produce video game projects from the perspective of conceptual and creative design, learning the best techniques and tools used in the industry from industry mentors, who will accompany you throughout the entire learning process providing personalized feedback in each class.

You will focus on the production of ideas, creative methods, entertainment theory and the creation of projects from mechanical design, seeking to establish an emotional result in the experience. We will focus on these topics so that you can successfully solve the most recurring problems in the profession. You will learn how to correctly organize and face the challenges of exploring and searching for entertainment. Networking with other students will be key to meeting goals and preparing for future work teams. At the end of the course you will have a portfolio with design documentation and your own video games.

The world needs people who love what they do. If you are passionate about creating worlds and how they work, this is the specialization you have been looking for.

What our graduates have to say

Agustin De Salterain - Estudiante de Image Campus Testimonios
Augustine of Salterain
Lead Game Designer at Midnite

Image was a before and after in my career. After studying Game Design I got my first job in the industry and it was the first step towards becoming a lead game designer, the job I always wanted to have. In addition to gaining knowledge, I met incredible people who taught me a lot of things on a human level. Today some of my former classmates are co-workers and other best friends.

Fernanda Arrebillaga
Game Designer Freelance

After studying Image and Sound Design (UBA), I decided to do the Game Design journey. It was a great complement to what I studied and allowed me to see the design from a totally new and enriching perspective. The interesting thing about Image are all the extracurricular activities you meet members of other disciplines.
