School of Interactive Design
Industry veterans introduce students of all ages to the thrilling world of video game design at School of Interactive Design. Drawing on their experience at game studios such as Ubisoft and in films such as Lord of the Rings, those teachers guide students through easy-to-follow steps for making games for iPhone, iPad, Android, and desktop—regardless of their knowledge of coding. The lessons take the form of an online video series and cover topics ranging from game physics to a step-by-step recreation of Flappy Bird to an overview of why you don't have to put quarters into a smartphone arcade game.
