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 a scary thing and dedicated exclusively to specialists. The technology allows anyone to make a video game from the comfort of home and in their own free time. Come to the GameDev Academy courses and from the first day you will make a video game using editors like Unity or Unreal without any programming knowledge!

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.

    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

    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.

    thumb Albert Sroder

    5 star review  Excellent space to get a feel for what game development is and what it takes to make games. The academy does a great job of bringing industry know how and insights to the curious students. Most importantly, this is a place where students can meet with people working within the industry to learn from their experience and to build a network of profesional connections.

    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.

    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

    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  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

    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  During the Game Design Module I course, the academy helped me fill some gaps and misunderstood conceptions about designing and how things are applied. The thing I really enjoyed was that every session had some fun in it and it made it easier to grasp the information. I think making you feel like you are learning with friends and not with an institution is very important. Overall i had a blast and i am looking forward to continue with the next module.

    thumb Alexandru Radu

    5 star review  Overall o experienta placuta, destule lucruri de invatat de la oameni din industrie, foarte bine pregatiti si dornici sa informeze si sa directioneze corespunzator orice student pentru GameDev-ul din Romania si strainatate.

    thumb Cristian Radu

    5 star review  Nice, smart people that really care and place a substanțial effort into making something really unique in Romania.

    thumb Stefan Mihai

    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

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

    thumb Mihnea Calota

    positive review  Really nice environment of people.

    thumb Stefan Daniel

    5 star review  Dupa ce am absolvit cursul de Unity pentru incepatori, pot spune ca a fost una dintre cele mai interesante experiente la care am luat parte pana acum. Sa vezi, in sfarsit, oameni carora chiar le pasa ca si la noi sa existe astfel de cursuri, avand in vedere ca indusrtia creste extrem de rapid. Trainerii au fost expceptionali, foarte captivanti si cu simtul umorului, lucruri care au sporit mai tare placerea de a ma duce la curs. O sa ma intorc, mai mult ca sigur si pentru alte module intrucat am incredere, 10/10.

    thumb Ion Alexandru

    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!
