Game Development Facilities

The Academy’s game development studio facilities are designed to prepare you for a career in the game development industry. Our hands-on learning environment creates a culture that supports curiosity, investigation, and production.

Online students are also hands-on, as they engage in discussions and activities through the online platform, social media, and real-time streaming of our events. Both online and onsite learning environments give you the skills you need to create the game development career of your dreams.
