When you’re immersed in a game, everything else seems to fall away. Not merely content to watch a story unfold, gamers crave entertainment experiences that require active participation.
The best games draw the player in through a combination of world building, strategy, and storytelling. It takes a cohesive team of creative thinkers to cover all those bases, and Full Sail’s degrees have specialized angles to address those unique roles.
