Game Jam Based Iterative Curriculum for Game Production in Japan

In this paper, we introduce a game production curriculum to iterate multiple game development cycles in a limited period of time. In one semester, we executed a game development process three times, changing members every time. Students had the opportunity to gain experience, working with various different people; also, providing a time limit for the development process, they learned how to manage development time effectively. Furthermore, by implementing the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) cycle [ASQ] in each development, students had the opportunity to find and solve problems during the semester. Using this framework, we worked on the following three educational problems:

(1) Development that is mixed with students of diverse ages and educational levels
(2) To be conscious about development time
(3) Learn how to solve issues related to game development
