Course Description

Some video game designers are programmers in their own right, and may have even come from that background to a designer’s role. Others have a less formal background. All video game designers should have a solid understanding of what programmers can and cannot do, how assets interact with code, what algorithmic thinking is and how to take advantage of the capabilities of different engines and tools.

I'm taking a few programming courses now which are wonderful and I'm creating actual working games while I take them. It pains me to write this because I really like RIT but, unfortunately, I can't say the same about this course. When I took it a few months ago, it was an absolute mess. Many quiz questions were incorrect (which was frustrating because they're required to pass the course), there were too many typos to count and there is absolutely zero contact with the actual instructor (if you have any questions, and trust me, you'll have a lot, they're forwarded to him and then answered by a staff who knows zip about programming). I don't know if it's changed since then but there are many, many other courses which will teach you programming in much better ways and by using programs to create video games that are actually used within the professional community. This X-Series was a good first try but it needs many changes to be worthw... I'm taking a few programming courses now which are wonderful and I'm creating actual working games while I take them.

This X-Series was a good first try but it needs many changes to be worthwhile to aspiring game designers.
