Abstract

This study focuses on the impact of video game development as an approach to educate individuals for the demands of creative industries such as video games. Questionnaires were administered to 38 students enrolled in two educational programs which involved developing video games. Findings suggest that developing video games creates an exceptional setting to promote the students' creativity, due to characteristics of the task and of the work environment generated by this activity.
