On September 17, as part of a class assignment, students of GDD201: Game Design I hosted an event on campus called Come Out and Play QU. The goal of this assignment was to give students experience designing games for real players, who have free will, limited time, and won’t tolerate playing boring games for very long. In GDD101, Introduction to Game Design, students got roommates or friends to test their games by asking nicely; only a few games were actually fun enough to play for the pleasure of it. In GDD201, student game designers are held to a higher standard and are challenged to create games that people choose to play for fun. Please see the video below to get a sense of the Come Out and Play event!
