Famed game developer Will Wright is teaching a massive class on games – via MasterClass. In his class, Wright covers a slew of game design topics, like generating new concepts, creating game mechanics, player psychology, and mental modeling. Best known for his work creating SimCity and The Sims, Wright has had a celebrated career in game development. 

Enrollment for the class is $90 for lifetime access or $180 per year for the All-Access Pass, which grants unlimited access to all new and existing classes.

“I think that game design can represent a lot of learning that you can bring back into other design fields,” said Wright. “I wanted to teach a MasterClass as a way of relaying some of the things I learned over the years and inspiring the next generation of designers. We’re on the cusp of some really interesting technology but good game design is essentially about understanding the player.”

Wright was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award the 2001 Game Developers Choice Awards and inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts Sciences’ Hall of Fame in 2002. Check out the video below and let Wright tell you about the class!
