    Hello Gourav,
    You must select best suitable option for you in Game Design segment. I know of very few options in Government Sector having focus on Gaming through a Course. You have to be passionate yourself apart from possessing artistic talent. There are fine art colleges mostly from Govt universities, but they mostly teach art and don't cover new media programs. Choose best source available by doing Research and Analysis yourself. Ensure that you get proper skill and mentoring by Experts. Typically past placements, infrastructure, faculty and exposure through Value addition matters the most in this industry.
    Best wishes

It is one of the most complex parts of software development.For most diploma courses in game designing, a 10+2, will be enough. There is no requirement of minimum marks.
