Blendo Game Designer, Brendon Chung, has a simple answer to the question, “How do I get started making games.” His answer is, “Make stuff. And then make more stuff.”
Great ideas are – well – not so great if they stay in your head or scratched out on a piece of paper. Until you actually start building something, you have no idea whether or not it will work or be any fun to play. At Cogswell College, we agree with Mr. Chung’s premise – you learn best by doing – so that’s the way we design our coursework.
Yes, learning good design theory will make your job easier and increase your chances for success but unless you get your hands dirty, you’ll never know if your idea has potential.
