Degree in Game Art and Design (Pune)



Game design is both an art and a science. It involves designing the content of a game which includes everything from the rules, game play and environment of the game to the storyline and characters. Think of it as being the director of a game – you call the shots!

We are among those few game design colleges in India that offer game art and design degree courses which are more practically oriented and less theoretically so our student get hands on experience while still studying. Our degree in game design is crafted to give every game enthusiast the knowledge to make games, design concepts, develop 2D and 3D art, and work with game engines confidently. This course will help students understand the difference between game art, game programming, and game design.

As one of India’s premier game design schools and game art degree colleges, we ensure students develop better all-round skills by including often-overlooked subjects (scripting, for example). We have also introduced sound and music design for the first time in this Bachelor of Game Design program – the only gaming design degree course in India to actually address this subject in the specialized space of video games.

Based in Pune, Seamedu’s all-encompassing video game design course offers all you need to push the boundaries in game art and design!
