Do you want to develop your creative, technical or artistic talents in a dynamic and innovative environment, creating video games?
GameDev Academy is the ideal place for you! We expect you with competitive prices and full support so that you can land a job in the industry!
GameDev Academy

We are the only center in Romania offering professional courses in this field of activity and the only authorised and accredited Unity Center. In Romania, there is already a community of over 7000 people working in this industry. However, few people have had access to courses and trainings in this area, which until now has been completely alien to anyone interested in a career in video game development. What are you waiting for? GameDev Academy is the ideal place for you!

Great place to learn all there is about the gaming industry. I attended the 2D Graphics course and it was soo helpful. The instructor, Cata, really knows his stuff, has a lot of experience and explains things so that everyone can understand, even us begginers. It also helps that he has patience, so we can ask questions about certain things. The whole team there is extremely nice, friendly and helpful. Again, great place to learn!

Game Design

In the broadest sense, game design refers to the idea behind a game, but it means much more than that. Game design also refers to the central theme of a game or other aspects, such as the definition of the characters or the available abilities. Let's learn what to do when you have a game idea and how to put it into practice!

Learn to develop games

Making a video game is no longer scary and adequate only for specialists. Technology allows any person to make a video game in the comfort of their home and on their own free time. Join GameDev Academy courses and from day one you will make a video game using editors like Unity or Unreal without having any programming skills!

Digital graphic

In artistic terms, most of the games are true artistic masterpieces, dynamic and interactive digital paintings in motion. GameDev Academy is the right place to learn digital drawing, 3D modeling, texturing or even real-time rendering!

Immersive classes

From the very beginning, we wanted to organize courses in which we constantly interact with the participants, give them individual attention and make sure everyone learns the elements taught. For this reason, our groups have a maximum of 8 students, and if there are more students enrolled in a course, we prefer to organize two groups in parallel, rather than taking a course in the pile. Also from the first day, students get into bread and work on developing a game, a visual object, or a gameplay sequence.

A way to work for gaming studios

We know how difficult it is to get into this industry. At no educational level there is no support for game development specialists, and learning from the internet alone is often frustrating and difficult. We support our trainees through our partners, most local game development studios, offering the opportunity for those interested in a job to opt for an internship when such positions are open.

    5 star review  Best place to learn everything about gaming in Romania.

    thumb Alexandru Oprea

    5 star review  Game Dev Academy is a great place for anyone hoping to further their knowledge in terms of games development. They have friendly staff and they take a more relaxed approach to education. You will meet other like minded individuals with various talents and experiences. I greatly recommend this to anyone starting out and even for experienced people already in the industry. I personally completed Game Design Module 1 and plan to take on the next part as soon as it's ready ^^

    negative review  Lipsa de punctualitate si respect fata de persoanele cu care lucreaza.

    thumb Mihnea Calota

    5 star review  Am dat de oameni pasionati si care iti inpartasesc informatiile cu drag. Daca aveti intrebari sau dubii sunati-i ca o sa va raspunda la orice curiozitate. :)

    thumb Samir Baaddi

    5 star review  A great experience! Courses were nicely structured and interactive, giving us a chance to practice what we learned with each lesson. I really enjoyed taking this course, as it introduced me to many game design concepts that I was only partially aware of, but not knowing how to define or explain. Both Andrei and Dragos shared with us essential knowledge, which any aspiring game designer should be able to master. Recommended for anyone who wants to start off on this field!

    5 star review  Am participat la cateva proiecte organizate de GameDev si la cursul de Unity si am ramas placut impresionat. Proiectele au fost unele dintre cele mai interesante experiente, acolo am cunoscut oameni faini din domeniul gamingului romanesc, am invatat ce inseamna sa lucrezi intr-o echipa interdependenta si m-am distrat enorm. Cursul de Unity a fost extrem de educativ, trainerul fiind mai mult decat pasionat de subiect, lectiile mulandu-se pe cerintele grupei. Recomand calduros cursurile tuturor persoanelor, in special tinerilor, ce sunt interesate de a isi imbunatati vizibil skillurile si de a intra in industria jocurilor video si a programarii!

    thumb Tudor Ristea

    positive review  Great place to learn game development. Friendly and helpful people. Nicely structured course.

    thumb Minu Alexandru

    5 star review  Personal nu recomand.. oamenii sunt prea nice acolo si e greu sa te adaptezi la atata bunavointa dupa ce te-ai obisnuit zilnic doar cu assholes. Programul e prea flexibil.. cine a mai auzit de un program care e convenabil pentru toata lumea?? Cat despre materia predata nici nu mai discut.. nu mai am nici o scuza sa continui sa nu fac nimic pe pretextul “nu stiu”. Extra: nu au pus nici manele date la maxim in timpul cursurilor si nici nu ne-au servit cu seminte iar cand am adus de acasa nu ne-au lasat sa aruncam cojile pe jos, cum ar fi normal. *sad face*

    thumb Maria Pintean

    positive review  An amazing place full of passionate people looking forward to share their knowledge with you. The courses were highly interactive, very well structured and also fun. There were never questions left unanswered. I have never been more eager to go back for more!

    thumb Andreea Grigore

    positive review  Daca esti interesat sa lucrezi in industria jocurilor video, GDA reprezinta o oportunitate foarte solida de a te introduce si pregati in domeniu. Este un mediu foarte placut, dar si serios in aceelasi timp, profesorii fiind persoane experimentate care au avut ocazia de a lucra in companiile de jocuri din Romania. GDA acopera foarte multe domenii de la GameDesign la Arta (3D) pana la utilizarea motoarelor de gaming precum Unity si Unreal. Recomand total.

    thumb Marcus Hunter

    5 star review  The staff is friendly, and after the first course you will have the basic knowledge about game design and a more clear path to follow.

    thumb Mohammad Elnayef

    5 star review  Am avut norocul de a castiga o reducere la un curs (la alegere) din cadrul Gamedev Academy si am fost placut impresionat. Informatia a fost bine structurata si prezentata intr-un mod captivant de catre oameni experimentati care nu au esuat in a-mi raspunde la toate intrebarile pe care le-am avut. Cursul pe care l-am urmat a fost cel de Grafica 2d si il recomand oricui doreste sa se orienteze spre acest domeniu. Felicitari Gamedev! Oferiti un bun exemplu de predare care nu e doar complet, dar si in ton cu secolul in care traim.

    thumb Traian Colac

    5 star review  Un loc foarte bun in care poti incepe sa acumulezi cunostinte esentiale fie ca vrei o cariera in industrie sau pur si simplu cauti sa inveti ceva nou. Conditiile si maniera in care se desfasoara cursurile si ocazia de a invata de la oameni cu experienta in domeniu fac din GameDev un loc ideal pt cei pasionati de gaming.

    thumb Dragos Timofte

    positive review  Un loc minunat pentru a invata o multitudine de skill-uri necesare in industria de game development. Au ca traineri oameni cu ani de zile de experienta in industria de jocuri care te ajuta si te indruma pe parcursul cursurilor. Am participat la Unity I si Unity II, cursuri care m-au ajutat sa inteleg mai bine ecosistemul Unity si care mi-au oferit informatiile necesare sa pot incepe proiectele mele personale. Bineinteles, un rol foarte important il are si gradul de implicare al studentului in timpul si dupa terminare cursului. Oricat de buni ar fi trainerii, daca nu depui efort si de unul singur, nu o sa realizezi jocurile pe care le doresti. In concluzie, recomand cu incredere GameDev Academy, oamenii sunt foarte faini si foarte bine pregatiti.

    thumb Costin Mirica

    positive review  Un loc special cu oameni dedicati industriei de gaming. Daca vreti sa invatati despre cum se fac jocurile si nu numai, aici este locul perfect.

    thumb Mihai Ionescu

    positive review  De ce să-i recomand pe cei de la GameDev Academy? Pentru simplul fapt ca acopera un vacum în învățamantul românesc? Pentru că sunt cei mai accesibili profesioniști cu o curilcula la zi de pe piața româneasca? Raspunsul este simplu: sunt oameni iar pasiunea lor sunt jocurile video. Cum spunea si Aristotel, "Placerea meseriei duce la perfectionarea muncii". Acesti oameni isi pun la dispoziție timpul și experianța lor la dispoziția tinerilor din Romania, care nu au bani de SAE sau cursuri în afară. Desi multi care vor sa plece afara la vre-o universitate gasesc un impuls și o directie tot aici. Am participat încă de la deschidere la activitățile celor de la GameDev, am fost la tot ce am putut eu ajunge, din activitatile lor gratiute, tester fiind nu-mi permiteam sa vin la cursuri. Dar am reuști sa-o fac si pe asta si am participat la cursul de Unity si alte cursuri de design iar experienta și siguranța (încrederea) în capacitățile mele au crescut considerabil. Contactul și activitățile de aici sunt complementare oricariui job pe care-l ai din domeniu. Voi participa în continuare la orice activitate o vor avea și nu mai zic ca incepe GameLab-ul, o experiență unica. Tot ce trebuie sa faca cel ce vrea sa lucreze în domeniul jocurilor video e sa vina aici și sa poarte o scurta discuție cu Andrei sau Dragos, îî garantez ca o sa regrete doar ca nu a îndraznit sa-o faca mai devreme. Spor în continuare și ne vedem la cursuri.

    thumb Munteanu Bogdan-Claudiu

    5 star review  Foarte util cursul de unity si pentru incepatori si pentru cei mai avansati. Treci prin toate etapele realizarii unui joc si ajungi sa cunosti programul foarte bine.
