The game design course focusses on new aspects of digital computer games. After a brief historical overview starting from the first TicTacToe game on oscilloscops to the latest first-person-ego-shooter on dedicated gaming hardware different trends, technologies and categories of games will be discussed.
We then show new trends in game design, mainly from human-computer interaction.
In this course, a pervasive, mobile, augmented reality game will be developed (see project section).
Game history, game categories, game development strategies, human-computer interfaces, virtuality-reality-continuum, tangible media games, pervasive games.

All course material will be available as *.pdf files which can be viewed in a freely available Acrobat pdf-viewer from Adobe, the »Acrobat Reader«: Please look at   »Acrobat Reader«.

For those of you, who want to print several slides on one page to save paper and printer ink (good idea!) I would recommend to use any free printer tool like fineprint:
