Game Design & Development Courses​

Our course teaches students how to create their own video games using the Unity editor. As they develop their games, they’ll learn to clearly, and efficiently code in C#, a powerful programming language used by professionals.

A complete learning system

Wether you’re just starting out or consider yourself an expert, you’ll learn all the skills needed to build various Unity games. Beginners will start by developing their own Platformer game where they’ll get familiar with the Unity platform and the C# programming language. They’ll continue to LevelUp their coding skills by creating various other types of games like Puzzles, Dungeon Crawlers, Artillery and more.

Our courses feature:

  • Four different game projects (and growing!) that teach you everything you need to know
  • The same coding languages used by professionals
  • A project-based approach where you learn-by-doing.
  • Easy-to-follow instructions creating by experienced teachers.
