Online Game Design Course
I’m currently preparing a lecture called “Principles of Game Development” for the SAE Bochum. While doing some research I stumbled across an awesome blog by Ian Schreiber called Game Design Concepts. The author calls it an experiment in game design and teaching. In 20 comprehensive posts this blog provides tons of useful tips for beginners in the field of game design, covers a lot of theory and even suggests exercises to train one’s game design skills.
For all aspiring game designers out there this is a must-read! But even if you’re already working in the industry it’s worth a read, simply because it’s very well written and sums up so many important game design topics in such a compact form.
