what they're saying

Kind words from happy game developers

...interesting, informative, and very well produced...

I just wanted to say thank you for those fantastic videos (Evolution of Computing Series). Each one of them is very interesting, informative, and very well produced. I'm happy to hear that there will be more, can't wait for it

...I have shipped 2 Unity games for the iOS...

Now I have to say, this course is very well done, detailed and very easy to understand! I have read/watched other Unity tutorial videos and have even shipped 2 Unity games for the iOS and I'm still learning quite a lot from these videos! Keep up the good work Game Institute!

...I'm finally able to write my first game...

I'd like to thank everyone at Game Institute. I always wanted to learn game programming. I have tried a few times in the past alone with books but I've always given up after one or two months. Now I'm finally able to write my first game, thanks to Game Institute and your wonderful curriculum.

...surpasses the lessons and lectures I had during 3 year BSc Honours university Game Development degree...

I first enrolled at this site (for the Environment Navigation course) waaaay back in 2003. I was a little skeptical about paying for the Graphics and Game Engine Programming course, because at that time I was just coming to the end of my University Degree in game development, so I already knew how to program with DirectX. In any event, I decided that I had some spare cash so I went ahead and enrolled, and I must say I'm very glad that I did. Whilst I already knew how to 'use DX9', I didn't have that much knowledge about how things worked behind the scenes. The chapter 1 textbook was so useful with explaining the math behind DirectX's rendering that I even managed to hand-code a 3D engine using j2me (without using any 3D API's). The problem I had is that being so busy with work, I didn't get to spend the time I wanted going through the whole set of text/workbooks and eventually just used it as a reference. So anyway, I just wanted to say (a quick?) thanks to everyone at GI. These courses are truly the best I've seen, and in my opinion far surpass the lessons and lectures that I had during a 3 year BSc Honours university course.

..I LOVE these videos...

I love these videos! I am going through the Unity tutorials and have to say that I love that you show everything in detail. It is really easy to understand when I can follow along with the videos, put theory into practice immediately, and see a result.

...I have a first class degree in animation...

I have a first class degree in animation, and yet through all the years of my education, I have never seen so many excellent tutorials and examples with brilliant explanations and crystal clear instruction of how to do something from beginning to the end. You learn all the secrets including how to fix and avoid problems. The best part is that you are not just being shown how to model, texture, etc., you also learn how to think and plan your project. I would recommend this Art and Animation training program to anyone. I am learning a lot and loving every moment of it.

...these are the best game development courses I have ever come across...

I completely agree that these are the best game development courses I have ever come across. That's why I purchased almost all of them and would recommend them to everyone.

...was actually quite upset to reach the end...

Wow, what an eye-opening, great history of computers, how they came to be, and how they evolved (Evolution of Computing Video Series). I thoroughly enjoyed watching these, and was actually quite upset to reach the end. I wanted more, LOL! I highly recommend that everybody watches these. Amazing!

...the Unity videos are great and got me hooked...

I am studying game technology myself now in a Dutch study and I agree that mathematics and engine stuff can be quite hard to get through. But let me assure you, the material here is incredibly humorous and cool compared to my math teacher and study materials. And at the same time it explains the concepts much clearer too. I use it often as a reference for some concepts because the offerings are so much better than what I get from my school :( Though I gotta agree on the rest; the Unity videos are great and got me hooked. Great job on it!

...nothing explains it as good as your materials...

Amazing courses. I am TOTALLY impressed. I have so many game programming books/tutorials and nothing explains it as good as your materials. Too bad you don't know me, but if you did , you would realize that this is the biggest compliment you got ever ;) I never give compliments if I am not 1000% satisfied. I mostly don't believe in learning online, but it seems like your material was written just for me :)
