Frequently Asked Questions

It’s a question every game designer must ask themselves as they progress to intermediate and advanced levels. After all, the type of experience gamers are looking for varies widely based on the game genre. From classic arcade games to role playing games to first-person shooter games and many more, working within specific gaming genres is a great way to refine design and coding skills.

As video games get more and more advanced, the production behind them is as sophisticated and complex as the making of blockbuster films! From coding to amazing graphics and sophisticated game mechanics, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes. By combining a gamer’s eye for design and game mechanics with Unity programming, kids can level up their STEM skills.

As of 2021 the total market value of the gaming industry was $151.06 billion dollars, with steady growth predicted through 2027. This is just one indicator of exciting things to come in the gaming universe, and even more so in terms of job opportunities and careers in this field as designers, engineers, studio executives, and more.
