“The Game Design class let me dive into the code of a game and learn hands-on how to apply what I knew. I could have chosen to focus on the aesthetics portion of the projects, but since I had the choice I got to do what was most fun for me.” - Sam S.

"These classes were a great introduction to game development here at Saint Paul College. What I loved the collaborative work environment the instructor nurtured. He covered the information in detail and left it up to the student to interpret and express creatively as they wished. This is a fun hybrid course, recommended to anyone who is interested in blending HTML/JavaScript, Graphic Design, 2D Graphics, Audio/Music, Animation and more.” - Gustavo G.

“Both of the gaming courses I took at SPC were fantastic. I loved delving into code for famous early games, and being able to dissect them. The way the course was taught was very intuitive, and went step by step through what each part did and how it all connected. The flexibility of the course also made it very enjoyable, as we were free to experiment with the new environment. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in coding, Graphic Design, gaming implementation, or just a feel-good course.” - Caleb T.
