“1UP Academy’s game development course was very helpful in teaching me the basics of game programming. The course was easy to follow and the instructors were very knowledgeable”

Abhinav Satavelekar

“I had no previous experience in coding and game development, but I wanted to start creating my own games. After doing a bit of research on game development programs, I came across 1UP Academy. They are one of the few online institutes that offer a quality course on Unity Game development. I would say that the course helped me to create my first game!”
