The Game Institute

Game Development Training, Accreditation, Certification

The Game Institute™ is a leading provider of professional training in the field of video game development. We teach the most important skills necessary for anyone interested in creating video game art and/or writing code for games. We are an independent game development shop ourselves, founded by a team of industry game artists and programmers in the US and UK in 2001. We have trained tens of thousands of learners all around the world since then, many of whom have gone on to industry jobs.

As a subscriber, you can train directly here at the website, totally at your own pace, or you can seek a more structured certification program here with us or through one of over 3000 accredited education partners. We offer tracks for both game artists and game programmers. In addition to high school and college students and industry pros, a significant percentage of our members are amateur, indie, and hobbyist game designers and developers working on their own independent game projects.
