EDUCATIONAL GOALS

The specific objective of the Master is to investigate the videogame universe starting from its creative components and the cognitive-psychological aspects that determine its interactive, narrative, environmental and entertainment dynamics.

Starting from the phenomena related to perception, emulative play and learning, placing solid roots in the knowledge of Game Theory, in the evolution of the media involved and their components, creative and design aspects are analyzed which, through the deepening of the narrative line , of the script, of the settings and of the characters, will lead the students to define – in every design occasion – an effective videogame experience.

The research sectors of the Master in Game Design are therefore the knowledge of the phenomenological and disciplinary context, the construction of the narrative, the design of the environment and the management of the game production and marketing process.
