Program Overview

Over the two years of the AFA game design program, students work through a studio-based design and development program at NYFA’s Game Design School that explores the craft of games. The strict regimen is comprised of workshops, classes, lectures, seminars, and hands-on studio work. In year one, instruction focuses on fundamentals of playable system design, analysis of games, programming for non-programmers, and story. Weekly guest lectures provide insight on where the industry is today and where it will be in the future. At the completion of the first year, AFA students achieve the following:
Paper prototype game portfolio.

  • Digital art portfolio.
  • Game narrative story and character portfolio.
  • Game programming primer.
  • Two functioning digital games suitable for the student’s online portfolio. These games will be created in collaboration with classmates and mentors.
  • Exposure to Agile development methodology and professional tools.
