Abstract

The article gives an overview of issues arising in connection with the organization and conduct of the course “Computer game development” in the master’s program 014.09 Secondary education (Informatics). The study of the experience of similar courses in other educational institutions does not give an idea of what conditions are the best for conducting it, because “Computer game development” is mainly present in the curriculum of the Software Engineering specialty and is not limited to one course. The game development course is described in terms of content, software and teaching methods. This course, which was attended by 40 students in three years, was evaluated in the light of the approach proposed by A. D. Ritzhaupt and based on the students' opinion. As a result of this research, it was concluded that a course in video game development could be based on the Unity Engine, as it has a small entry threshold, free for academic purposes, a crossplatform, real game engine, common in the gaming industry. A team strategy for this course is also effective.
