Enroll in the ENGRC Companion Course

We have added an extra hour to the course to reflect the amount of work that you do for this course, particularly in the group work. This extra hour labelled as the course ENGRC 3152. All students must sign up for this course, even those that are not taking the course for Technical Writing credit. If you do not sign up for that course, you will be dropped from this course.

Course Textbook

There is a textbook for this course. The text is a "soft reference". We will assign reading from the text, and you should definitely own the text if you are serious about game design. With that said, you will never be tested on the textbook material.

The campus store is telling me that the book is delayed because of the publisher. If getting an eBook is okay with you they do have that available. Otherwise, you may wish to look into a used version online. Either the 2nd or 3rd edition of this book is fine.

Course Wait List

This course was a little easier to get into this year. There were only 130 applications, which is down from previous years. However, we still only have 72 slots in the course, so we had to pick and choose. Preference was given to students attempting to complete the game design minor, or teams of students that were pre-formed before getting into the course.

With that said, there are always more openings during the first two weeks of class. We historically get 5 or 6 drops in the first two weeks. If you received an e-mail telling you that you are on the wait list, feel free to come to the first day of class. We will have a better idea of openings at that time.
