High level game engines have become popular in recent years as they allow developers to focus on designing a game and leaving much of the low level computing to the game engine. This subject will teach students the principles of game design and give them the opportunity to create a game using an existing game engine. They will learn how to create/modify environmental effects, camera perspectives, AI behaviours and game types.
