SSR - Games Development - Game Development

Games Development

What do Braid, Fez, Gone Home, Limbo and FTL have in common? The answer is, they're all massively successful games created by small independent game studios. Creating a winning game no longer requires a huge studio with a vast budget; it just takes ambition, perseverance and a bucket-load of imagination.

Here at SSR we'll give you the tools to develop all of these things and more. During this Games Development course in Manchester, over six months you'll learn every aspect of the game production pipeline and by the end you'll not only be able to create a full game with Unreal Engine, you'll also know how to sell it and get yourself noticed.
