Full disclosure; this was the best blessing I've had the opportunity to receive in recent time. One inquiry, two meetings and some communication later and now I'm here. And I wouldn't want to change it or where I am now for anything.

Learning the ins and outs of building a game studio while also creating a game from concept to launching on the App Store was an awesome experience. It was well worth the time and investment.

As a software developer getting an in depth view of the production and business side of things is invaluable knowledge, especially for those who want to want to be able to work for or start a startup
The process by which you brainstorm, pick a great idea, develop that idea into a game, and then publish that game, was incredible to learn! The course is full of great insight and information about the gaming industry from people who work in the industry. Thorough, informative, and useful!
I'm very excited that I recently got a test engineering job at a company making VR concert experiences. During my interviews, I was questioned more than once about my current endeavor with the Indie Game Academy and doing Unity programming in a group project. I believe it directly impacted me getting the job.
Coming from a background as an indie game developer, the concepts you will learn in this program are things that take years to learn alone. I can't recommend this program enough to master the full business development lifecycle.
