Game Design at ZHdK
In Game Design at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), between 7 and 10 new board games are developed each year. First, rules and concepts are analyzed and the mechanics are questioned. In teams of two, students then develop their own board game, test and refine it, and design a playable prototype.
We are the CRC235 research cluster situated in Munich. Our aim is to investigate the origin of life – and to make our results available to everyone. We designed a board game we called “AEON“ in which you can play around with the fundamental principles that led to life on earth, all based on our current scientific findings.
Game Division AG stands for simple and at the same time exciting games, which are authentically designed. Our task - to develop, produce and publish. Our motto is always: Playing should be fun. It should be for young and old! Convivial games for all generations that function purely through the language of form and colour. The added value of our games lies in various areas of development, such as perception, social behaviour, and concentration. But don't worry - the fun is not hidden!
