RUBIKA’s Game Art course trains high-level creative and technical people ready to enter the video game market.

Technical and demanding, the course places students in conditions similar to those of a professional studio. Students learn to create coherent and immersive graphic universes, allowing the player to live a striking game experience. Throughout the course, Game Art students create video game prototypes in collaboration with Game Design and Game Programming students.
