Participants must be 16 years to 19 years old when the program starts.
To be a good game designer, you must understand the fundamental principles of game design, the computer science that goes into designing a video game, the art and animation production process, and the storytelling and character creation skills necessary to bring video games to life. Having strong knowledge of all technical and creative aspects of the game development process is important to create the engaging, interactive experiences today’s players expect.
During this four-week program, you will get to experience what life is like for DigiPen college students who are working on completing their Bachelor of Arts in Game Design. The students in this track will take three (3) core academic classes plus the game project lab that involves students from all of the Pre-College tracks working together to complete a game:
Students must have access to a computer as well as additional hardware and software. For the Game Design track, students will need to have "Tabletop Simulator," which can be purchased for $20 by going to the STEAM Store.
Some programs or courses may indicate additional technology requirements, and not all programs are Mac compatible.
