This is a comprehensive course that trains to conceptualize and design every aspect of a game, as appropriate to the target audience and goal of the game. It prepares you to be the brain behind your games through the rules, challenges, environments, characters and different levels that you set for your games.

Need to Study Game Art and Design

The passion for games is within every individual, right from childhood. It is a daring step to move forward from just gamers to Game Designers. It is necessary to learn gaming in a perfect environment to become a successful Game designer. It is a real challenge to become a Game Designer and this challenge becomes easy when you are in the right hands.

The B.A. (Hons) Game Art and Design program at ICAT incorporates such right hands to groom designers out of just gamers.

Curriculum

For me, ICAT is a place where the term 'college' is meant very differently. ICAT feels more like a place to have fun with friends and at the same time gain knowledge, rather than just an educational institution. The atmosphere and the faculty here are so friendly and open. We are free not only to exercise any kind of hobbies, but are also encouraged to present them openly. I love to be in the college itself, rather than hanging around in any other place.

Game Art & Design Course
Today, I am a Game Developer working at a VR in Noida — a company fast rising up among the plethora of other Arch-Viz firms. I have worked on a PC game, Idol Hands; added four mobile titles to my name; have programmed one WebGL based township visualization solution; and I am currently developing a 2D engine. All this is done in the past 2 years. I am grateful to ICAT for showing me the way and for getting me together with talented people, who I still call my friends.

For prospective students, this is all I have to say: trust in yourself and take the leap.
