" Best 2 weeks of my life!"
– Student of The Champlain Game Academy
Taking game ideas from concept to execution is a team effort, which is why real game industry studios revolve around collaboration. The Champlain Game Academy immerses you in a workplace setting that replicates what you'll experience as a professional game developer.
Under the direction of professors The Champlain Game Academy will introduce you to all aspects of game development, including game design, game art and animation, programming, sound, testing and production. The curriculum is modeled on the collaborative approach of The Game Studio cohort at Champlain College. Students will have the opportunity to focus on their areas of special interest, and with the instruction of industry professionals will finish the Academy by co- creating a finished portion of a game.
The Advanced Game Academy will provide students with the opportunity to take their game prototype to a more advanced level by working closely with faculty. In addition, students will focus at a deeper level on one particular aspect of game development gaining more knowledge and preparation for college level classes.
