Gameplay Programming for Video Game Designers

Al Biles, RITx

Learn how to create the best gameplay by understanding algorithmic thinking in simple programming problems and applying it to game design.

Some video game designers are programmers in their own right, and may have even come from that background to a designer’s role. Others have a less formal background. All video game designers should have a solid understanding of what programmers can and cannot do, how assets interact with code, what algorithmic thinking is and how to take advantage of the capabilities of different engines and tools.

What will you learn

  • The different types of programming and skill sets required for video game designers
  • The common processes of programming 
  • How different control structures work
  • How assets make their way onto a video game and how they interact with the code
