If a student's dream is to be directly involved in research, design, and any other aspect of electronic gaming, this program is essential viewing material. In Getting into Games (Enhanced DVD), students journey behind the scenes with game developers to explore how games are made. Gamers and developers take the time to discuss how games are used for both fun and educational purposes.
Electronic games have moved well beyond those first arcade games, like Space Invaders. Modern game players expect games to be highly interactive with a certain level of sophistication. It is, after all, a multi-billion dollar industry that spans the globe, connecting with more people than the film and music industries. Serious game players dream of the day when they will be on the front-lines either designing their own games, or testing electronic games for others. This DVD features an Australian curriculum which was created to give people sneak-peek into modern day electronic gaming while looking ahead to the future of the industry.
