Design Games is a book, a course and an ongoing effort to teach designers and artists how to build creative applications inspired by video games. The course was first taught in the School of Architecture at the University of Minnesota in 2009. Since then, it has evolved through several modes of instruction and creative coding tools. A variation was taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012. It spawned a book published by Routledge in 2014 which teaches designers Unity skills.
