Testimonials

Extremely satisfying. The idea that I could program a game seemed completely beyond my reach at the beginning of my journey. Now it seems well within my grasp.

Testimonials

Very well designed: you learn almost without realizing it. I have done other Unity courses, many paid, and they were much more confusing and less motivating.

I really enjoyed it because it was easy to follow and you had a completed project at the end.

Testimonials

Empowering. Invigorating. Confidence building. I really like how the pathways not only focus on tactical skills but how to think about coding, about learning, about problem solving. Most courses, even at university levels, struggle with giving people foundational critical thinking skills in the topic area. I wouldn't have been able to be making games right now if it weren't for these courses!
