Everyone can make Games!

The game industry is the world's biggest entertainment industry, generating approximately $160 Billion in 2020, which is more than television, movies and digital music. It might be big but it's still a pretty young industry, and growing rapidly, especially in India.

There is a huge demand for game makers of all disciplines (Design, Art, Programming, Testing among others), but there is a distinct lack of resources for those wanting to join the game industry, whether it is getting a job at a company/studio or even taking the path of an entrepreneur and setting up their own studio.

In particular, Game Designers are in great demand; they are among the highest paid roles in game teams but there too few of them, and most courses that offer Game Design are basically Game Art courses or Tools courses!

In addition, there is a lack of experienced game industry professionals to teach game-making and also mentor prospective game-makers. Most game making professionals are occupied full-time with their work and can't find time to teach their skills and share their wisdom and learnings of making games and getting ahead in the game industry.

After teaching part time for ten years, Rahul realized the need of a practical Game Design and Production course that could teach people more than just tools.  He created the Gamer2maker Game Design and Production course to ensure that people have an all-round undestanding of game development and not just the technical aspect,  and to ensure that people are actually industry ready.

Gamer2maker is a course and also a method; it is a PRACTICAL course built from experience and expertise gained from teaching and mentoring thousands of students over a decade.  It is integrated with a game project that students are trained to complete and showcase using a step-by-step process that goes from the basics of game design and production to advanced topics which are delivered through a mix of recorded classes and live Masterclasses.

And not just game-making; the Gamer2maker course also helps students build a solid Game Career Strategy and make the right decisions to go far and rise in the Game Industry. This is done through specialized Game Career modules.


The Four Ps Of the Gamer2Maker Method

PLAN

This is what you do before starting to actually  make the game. Learn how to research, plan, scope and document your game project so that you give it the best chance of success once it's out there.

PRODUCE

The fun stuff-actually building the video game! You will learn the process of producing a game-creating art assets, implementing code, making the game world and designing levels.

POLISH

Here's where you take your game from good to great. Create a great tutorial; tune and balance your game, finalize the sounds and music and get ready to launch it!

PUSH

Get your game out into the world! Sell your game by creating marketing assets, a great trailer, build a community, leverage social media and even look for a publisher for your game!

The Iceberg Principle of Game-making

There's a LOT more to game-making than you can see at surface level! There are many hidden processes in game-making that you will learn through the G2M method. 

Why G2M is Unlike other online courses

Game Project

The only way to learn how to make video games is to actually make them! Build your own game from scratch and release it to learn the process and also gain experience and build your portfolio.

Rahul not only gave me enough knowledge to be the developer I am today, but also a great deal of advice about what the industry is like, and what to expect when I started working. His ways are very practical. He emphasizes teamwork, which helped me be a team player. He is an inspirational and encouraging mentor, and a great game designer to boot! "

He brought a lot of unique ideas and fun teaching techniques into the video game development scene in India. His own experiences in the game industry helped us a lot in understanding the importance of design and functional production pipelines.

FAQs

How long does the course take to complete?

Assuming that you spend at least 6 to 10 hours per week on it, the Gamer2Maker course material and exercises would take around 3 to 4 months to complete; this does not include the game project.

Will I learn programming/coding of games in this course? 

This is not a tools course; there are no classes for learning Unity, Unreal or any other engine. You will learn what to make with these tools and not how to make it.

You will need a computer (PC or Mac) with access to the internet, and also a graphics editor such as Photoshop (or Gimp, which is free).
