The module of Techniques for Games Development aims to further students’ knowledge and capabilities in developing interactive and engaging game environments by providing an in-depth understanding of the underlying physics and algorithms regulating game logic. This provides learners with the ability to capitalize further on their understanding of navigation, modelling and logic prediction to develop realistic and challenging game scenarios in line with industry standards and state-of-the-art integrations. Furthermore, capitalizing on students’ development knowledge, this module comprehensively outlines the various Artificial Intelligence approaches that are nowadays engaged within games, providing learners with the ability to develop adaptive and predictive techniques which enhance the algorithms and complexity employed in developing gaming scenarios within games engines.
