The mission of the Master in Video Game Creation is to train future professionals in the game industry.
Designed to prepare both expert game developers and artistic directors, this course will specialize both in the
technical aspects of game production (graphic programming, artificial intelligence, logic, etc.) and in the creative aspects (story conceptualization,
visual design, character modelling, scenarios, objectives, etc.). In class, video game professionals will show you the latest project management techniques
such as Scrum and Kanban and will teach you how to structure your project based on milestones or deliverables as required in the industry. Upon completion
of the course you will have developed a professional project that you will be able to launch on the market, as some former students have done (e.g.
Sugar Kid with A Crowd of Monsters).
The Master in Video Game Creation is considered a reference in the national and international industry sector. A large number of
former students have won prizes in competitions as prestigious as the Independent Games Festival, ArtFutura, Creanimax or the Three Headed Monkey Awards.
