Game development is a fun and rewarding career that continues to expand with each passing year. It is a discipline that draws on and teaches many different skills and technologies. The games industry is colossal, with many different routes available to people with the right technical skills. It’s the ideal profession for those who want to build a career around their passion for games. Whether you want to create a simple mobile app game or develop a rich, virtual universe, studying game development is the first step.
UNIMY’s programme produces creative game developers for desktop and mobile platforms who are capable of exploring game ideas through the infinite world of imagination and transforming them from concepts into virtual reality. Students will be exposed to core areas of game development such as art, visual designing, game designing, programming, production, as well as marketing. Students learn through hands-on experience as they are given an opportunity to create and showcase their own work samples at the end of the programme. This provides students with a platform to exercise their talents and skills.
So, where to start learning game development? UNIMY, of course…!
