Gaming for the Greater Good ± Freshman-level Comp Sci course that introduces the engineering process, then uses the process to design a game. A specific customer base (such as children on the autism spectrum) is identified, and games are explicitly developed for the intended audience. Games are developed using GameMaker, so no previous programming experience is necessary.
