  • Intro:

    The Game Design industry is far more versatile than most people imagine, and is booming, having surpassed the Movie and Music industries since 2009 in terms of generating revenue. There is currently a huge gap in the South African market for a Game Design Course, and at the moment, there is no educational institution offering a course of this kind.


    Friends of Design – Academy of Digital Arts, has designed and developed a Full Time afternoon course tailored around the various aspects of Game Production, its systems and design processes. Starting February 2013, the course will prepare and equip you for a career in the Game Industry thereby giving you the opportunity to begin the exciting career in this field.

    Among many other things, you will learn the essentials of game design, how to plan, conceptualise and create content for various types of games and how to participate in a team during a game production. Modules will include The Basics of Game Production | Game Engine | Unity 3D, Game Theory | Level Design | 3D Modeling & Animation and many more, preparing you to start working in various positions such as a Game Designer, Concept Artist, 3D Modeler, 2D Artist & Animator and others.
