The British Academy Games Awards are just days away, and they took the chance to interview a large group of folks in the game industry about game design. These interviews have been split up into several videos going over everything from level design, to the role of each person on a development team, to writing a good story.
The videos are part of BAFTA’s Young Game Designers program, which is a game design competition for 11-16 year olds. It’s meant to not only award kids for making a good game, but also to help get them interested in game design.
We found these videos interesting, and so figured we’d share them with all of you. So, below you can find the collection of videos and hopefully you’ll also find them as interesting as we do.
