The Video Game Design program featured at Atlanticon in Corner Brook, Newfoundland
Our program was recently featured at Atlantic-con in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.

The first year of the program is delivered online. Years two and three are delivered in person at the Prince Philip Drive campus.

The Video Game Art & Design program at College of the North Atlantic is more than just a combination of courses, technology, and people. We are a community who shares a love for gaming and embraces diversity. We learn, design, create, and play together. Geek culture is celebrated at conventions, where we present our original student games to the public and network with entertainment industry professionals. Lifelong bonds form during game jams. Our resource library is filled with a growing collection of classic and current consoles, video games, and board games for project reference, leisure, and social time.

The game industry has been evolving, and so too has the Video Game Art & Design program. We take the creative approach to game development through hands-on projects, the latest software, popular game engines, and technology such as virtual reality, digital drawing tablets, and motion capture. We design, document and develop entertaining 3d levels, board games, and 2D arcade games. Serious game development is an avenue where we explore meaningful play.
