Great course!\n\nThought I wouldn't use the stuff that I learned in the videos at first, but as I started working on my own projects, I realised it was very important knowledge for a game developer.

This course helps your game go from concept to reality. It pushed me to get a digital prototype made and ready to demo. Great depth of information related to game design and the gaming industry.

My difficulty in completing this course is that I am having to actually develop a playable version of a game. The information in the course is excellent but it is taking more time than I have to develop the playable version of the game I used for the exercises.

It's a really good course but I feel like you need more time to really do the assignments, one week between assignments is kind of little time to do all the design. Sometimes the lectures are not directly relationed with the assignments.

Great course, I suggest that the final assignment should be restricted to Digital prototypes because while I was assessing one of the assignments I saw people submitting wrong assignments that has nothing to do with prototypes.

The course is not bad, right? It gives you interesting texts to read, right? And explains a design process, right? Is it OK to say right after each sentence? (English is not my first language, right).

Somewhere between the corse the lectures are mixed up. That means that you first have the questions then in the next part of the week there is a reading and explanation. This was kinda confusing.

Very good course, allows you to actually "think" and implement a game, which I love.
Only issue is the grading. I would change the name of the scoring, makes it easy for people to give bad grades.

A lot was discussed, and many resources were offered, but I felt the general direction offered was too loose. When time came to do each week's assignment, I was not always sure how to execute.

It has a good structure of teaching, but it is not supported and in several moments it is necessary to look in the forum to advance. I recommend if you do not have difficulty with this.

Peer review is really bad idea for such assignement when you are writing your very first design document. It's very subjective and peers cannot provide a valuable feedback on your work

I learn a lot by doing assignments and reviewing other people's assignments. The important con of this course was some of its quizzes' questions which was ambiguous or badly framed.

Nice lessons, but the "teacher" use too often the word "right", what is really annoying. I hope you can
eradicate this terrible habit and fix the course materials after that.

Great content and great teacher. But I found the assignments and the quizzes not that great. I reckon the questions and corrections were a bit subjective and time consuming.

This course has made me more thoughtful and analytical, about things I did not really look at previously. Plus I learned to use Twine, it is a great tool.

Love this course, help me to define en clear terms the game i always want to desing and implement. Amazing profesor, the evaluations though

A lot of conceptual stuff going on, I learned what's a high concept document, a game design document, and the importance of prototyping!

There is a lot of writing here, but the course gives a better understanding of what is required outside of actually building a game

Another good course in the Game Design and Development specialization. I had a lot of fun making the prototype at the end.

I would have liked that the written feedback in the assignments were mandatory, it would allow us to improve on our designs

Useful for making people think and analyze things and to develop new ideas, the methods used were quite interesting.

It was a great experience to realize that game development was much more than coding, designing and audio mixing.

Insightful and enthralling! I learned game design in an orderly fashion along with dos and donts. Very useful.

The bit boring. But perhaps teaches some of the most required skills and concepts required in a game coarse.

This was a very good course, however the assignments were too long to complete in only a week.

Good content for the basics of Game Design, but the course lacks good graded materials.

Lots of detailed knowledge of game design, which makes me more professional
