Manchester Community College is joining other colleges in offering an associate’s degree program in video game design. The Journal Inquirer reported that professor Edward Hogan said Connecticut does not have a large gaming industry similar to California, Florida, or the Boston area. But he said the state’s tax credit program for the entertainment industry has led to some growth. He said at least eight gaming companies operate in Connecticut. Courses include an introduction to computer games that reviews the history of games and technologies and an introduction to literature to strengthen reading and writing skills.
