Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl



Game.Play.Design is for everyone interested in the potentials and uses of games, both classic computer games as well as emerging new formats such as VR, game jams, esports, games for change, art games, serious games, gamification and so on. The course explores the potentials of games through ‘applied theory’ in the form of hands-on exercises, game prototyping and creating a joint game exhibition at Dokk1 in Aarhus. The course does not require any specific skills besides an interest in games and a desire to play.
