Focus Group Description

Class Title: Critical Video Game Design
Student Faciliator: Andrew Butler
Email: abtler@uw.edu
Supervised by: Phillip Thurtle

In this focus group, we will examine how video games balance narrative, theme, and gameplay beginning with example indie games and game study research from recent years. Then, using the insights afforded by these examinations we will design and create a couple of small games that work through these new ideas. The goal is to create a collaborative environment to explore and develop critical ideas about game media. No programming or prior experience is required.
