This course is an introduction to the theory and practice of video game design and programming. Video game programming is one of the most challenging disciplines in Computer Science because it attempts to combine, in real time, concepts in: computer graphics, human computer interaction, networking, artificial intelligence, computer aided instruction, computer architecture, and databases.
Students between the University of Illinois at Chicago and Louisiana State University work in interdisciplinary teams (Computer Science and Art) to develop a game in approximately ten weeks.
