Description: The metaverse is a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal and immersive virtual world that is facilitated by virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). It is a digital world where anything we can imagine will exist. How do we design these virtual worlds?

Stemming from principles of video game design we look at storytelling, characters, style, interaction, aesthetics, and more, this workshop lays a primary foundation for the creation of digital worlds. The workshop will encourage participants to take conceptual risks and develop new modes of representation using a game engine. Students will put their creative skills to work by generating and engaging with world design as a personal project, outlining their projects’ conceptual, narrative, and aesthetic elements. We will also discuss what the metaverse is, why it’s important, some of the current trends, and what we might expect for the metaverse going forward.

Expected Outcome: An individual project of a mini metaverse/virtual world using Unity 3D. Relevant documentation such as presentation slides and videos explaining the development process and the final world.
