Course Description

Video game characters are part of our cultural vocabulary, from Super Mario to Lara Croft. What makes a great video game character? How can you make your own game character?

This course will teach you how gamers interact with their characters and identify with them. To provide you with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the field, we will cover anatomy, graphic design and narrative.

You'll eventually discover that studying the human condition can help you create characters gamers will recognize and understand.
