Analytic-Based Design Returns this Fall

For students interested in game design who have not been able to fit the Spring course in their schedule, Analytics-Driven Game Design returns this fall after a brief hiatus. This course has a very different focus than the traditional game-design courses but is still built around the same kind of multi-disciplinary teams.

As with all game design courses, admission to the course is by application. Please see the course description page for the application.
