Detailed information can be found in the Course Overview presentation.
The course is evaluated slightly differently at FIIT STU and FMFI UK.
|Activity||FIIT STU||FMFI UK|
|1 Game Design Document||10pt||15pt|
|Describe game mechanics (and story/setting if present) of a new game in the form of a GDD. The idea must be approved beforehand (send idea via email until 18. 10. 2020). Create a GDD and send via email (FMFI students)/upload to AIS (FIIT students) as a PDF document.|
Deadline: 25. 10. 2020
|2 Idea Pitch||5pt||5pt|
|Pitch your idea with a very short presentation (only 2 minutes) during the lecture on 19. 11. 2020. Send your slides via email (FMFI students)/upload to AIS (FIIT students) as PPTX or PDF. Embed all content into the slides (such as videos)!|
Deadline: 15. 11. 2020
Presentation: 19. 11. 2020 14:00 during Labs
|Create a game prototype as described in your GDD. You must use Unity & C#.|
Deliver all project files and a final build of the game in a single .zip file. Your project files must include commented source code of the entire game.
The project must be able to compile & build after extracting the build. You can use any Unity version above Unity 2018, but we recommend Unity 2020.1.15 for easier evaluation.
Deliver a build in the zip file for either Windows (folder with .exe) or Android (apk). Using external scripts, textures, models etc. is ALLOWED. However, large parts of game mechanics must be created by you. All external code must be marked with comments.
Team projects must have a project Git repository. Include the corresponding .git directory in the zip (full repository history must be present!). See GitHub, BitBucket or GitLab for free online private repository hosting while developing.
How the project is submitted differs based on which faculty you are attending.
Send (via email) a Google Drive/Dropbox/OneDrive link to the zip file. DO NOT use bandwidth limited free file hosting (e.g. uloz.to). Remember that we will download it immediately when received, so altering the file after the submission deadline will have no effect and will not be graded.
Upload to Google Classroom. You have received an invite link in the mail. ALL STUDENTS from a team project must submit the same ZIP file, not just one of you. This is for archival purposes.
Don’t forget to submit a link with the gameplay video in the zip file. Include it in a text file named video.txt
Deadline: 20. 12. 2020 23:59 (do not submit late and account for long upload times!)
Project discussion (exam): 14. 1. 2021 (have a device with the game installed ready, ideally stream from Unity or from a build)
|4 Gameplay Video||5pt||5pt|
|Record a 3-minute gameplay video with audio commentary or subtitles and upload it to YouTube (as unlisted). We will display it in the Project Showcase. We suggest using OBS or the Windows 10 Game Bar to record the video.|
Submit it with the project, include the video link in a text file named video.txt
Deadline: 20. 12. 2020 23:59 (send/upload together with prototype)
|5 End of Term Test||30pt||–|
|Only for FIIT students. A test in AIS.|
Date: 14. 1. 2021 (before project discussion)
|Points acquired||100 – 92||91 – 83||82 – 74||73 – 65||64 – 56||55 – 0|
