  • design and create basic audio-visual content of the game
  • design and implement basic game mechanisms
  • compile and present functional prototype their own digital game


Lectures are given weekly. Lectures covers various topics of game development field. Part of lectures is given by seassoned developers from Brno's game studios. See Study Materials for selected lectures from previous years (some older ones are in Czech language).


During the mandatory weekly seminars, students are working in small teams and learning how to implement various aspekts of digital game, using Unity game engine.
