In the course students learn methods to create a complex virtual world. It is a follow-up course of basic courses of the PG specialization (BIE-MGA, BIE-PGR). Students gain knowledge of the theory of game design, of principles of writing dialogues and characters in order to create a functional virtual world. Within the labs they get practical skills within team development work on the semester project.
