Game Design

Professor Ira Fay with students in his Intro to Game Design course: Ivana Yang, Robin Rainwalker, Jessica Stephens, Meghan Straus, Jesse Cruz, Elijah Palmer, GK Lai. As they develop and hone game design skills, the students also learn how the same fundamental concepts apply to any designed experience—and to daily life. Before joining Hampshire’s faculty this fall, their professor founded his own studio, Fay Games; cofounded the game design program at Quinnipiac University; and spent time at Electronic Arts, Activision, Disney, and Maxis. On campus he’s already launched Wednesday game gatherings in the dining commons and helped host the Five College Game Jam.
