Our school was founded by game industry veterans who believe that creating games provides a unique way to help children grow and learn.
- Recent software advances make it possible to learn how to create games at any age.
- Game creation is a playful approach to discovering different fields: programming, graphic design, design, and more!
- It also teaches children to work together with a natural and positive teamwork experience.
We work with a team of 25 teachers, all professionals in the video game industry, located in 15 cities across Quebec.
