Within the last decades, computer games have established themselves as a new medium with increasing cultural influence. In this context, interaction allows for a new approach to digital 3D imagery. As a player, one does not only react to the images but influences the immersive space through one's own behavior. Game design software tools enable designers to create unexpected digital 3D visualizations. Game engines such as Unity can be used for creating engaging experiences with relatively few lines of code. In the Game Design workshop, we will use Unity to design a virtual world in which the player can walk through and interact with objects. Participants will get an insight into creating a 3D project in Unity and learn how to use 3D models, shaders, lighting, and how to program simple interactions with the C# programming language.

Visual communication is a tool of knowledge generation in its own right. Visualizations make things perceptible, imaginable and graspable.
