Games Design research

The Games Design department hosts a dynamic community of researchers who work in a wide and diverse range of topics.

Among the current research, we are studying: the player experience of gameplay, tabletop gaming and the intersection between physical and digital work, exploring how to make college research outputs into games, and much more.

Our research is highly interdisciplinary. We engage with research groups at Brunel, an extensive network of researchers and scholars at other universities - nationally and internationally, and professionals in the games and other creative industries. This means our undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses are closely aligned with staff members’ research expertise and are up-to-date and compelling.

The department offers you an inclusive research culture that brings together academic staff and students in lecture series, game jams, seminars, and workshops - creating a fun, dynamic, and effective research environment.
