we are games

AIE was created by a game studio, and we've been the place to go to learn how to make games ever since.

The very first course run at AIE was taught by an experienced game developer who was working from a curriculum based on industry needs and using cutting edge tools and software used by studios around the world. That same industry-focus and connection continues everyday at AIE.
