Questions and answers of the customers
A While much of the course is visual all instruction will be in English and a good understanding is required to get the most from the course.
A No prior experience is required, only basic computer skills are expected. These include being able to user a web browser to download and apps and images, being able to copy and paste and type accurately. Some understanding of game mechanics is a bonus. Everything related to programming that you will need to know is covered on the course. That is not to say this is a beginners course advanced topics will be included and students will set their own level of challenge when they make their own unique game which can be as complex or as simple as they feel comfortable with.
A The laptop does not need to be particularly powerful but does need to be able to install new software so a Chromebook or tablet would not be suitable. Most laptops bought in the last 5 years should work. We support Windows 7 and above or recent versions of Apple OSX, it is possible to run on Linux but this is not officially supported so our tutors will not be able to troubleshoot any Linux specific issues.
