VK Computer Games

The course Computer games offers the cumulative knowledge focusing on computer game development. Besides basics in mathematics, algorithms and data structures also common patterns and best practice in the area of computer game development are presented. In parallel to the actual course students develop games themselves (in groups of 3) as practical tasks and present them at the end of the semester. The lecture itself takes place mainly in 4 h blocks, whereas in each course block another aspect of game development is chosen as main topic.
