I'm interested with the technical part of game design like the actual coding much more than the artsy stuff like graphics, story and what not.
Has anyone taken a similar course? I don't want to spend 4 hours a week sitting in a circle talking about stuff that is blatantly obvious like progression of difficulty.
If the course was going to actually teach me new concepts that are not obvious to anyone who has ever played a video game I would take it, but I'm not sure what it's going to be.
Here's a course overview for what it's worth (it doesn't yield much information.)
