From the arcade games of old to today’s sophisticated 4K experiences, video games have been a major part of pop culture for nearly four decades, and the industry has shown no signs of stopping. Outlandish adventures, sports simulations, historical recreations—the video game industry offers a wide range of experiences, limited only by the imagination of game software developers. Before graduation, you will go through a complete game development process so you have the hands-on experience you need to see a game through to completion.
Game Software Development classes are taught exclusively through Baker Online. Plus, general education and prerequisite courses are typically available through Baker Online, Online Live, and on all campuses throughout Michigan.Learn More
Game Developers create and produce games and simulations that run on computers, videogame consoles, over the Internet and on mobile devices. Working alone or within a team, Game Developers apply their creativity and skills to design games and simulations that entertain and educate. Once the framework is finalized, Game Developers add video, animations, programming, test and debug and finally release the final product.
