"This course is very helpful in developing crucial skills necessary for my professional career. Also, this course has tremendous value for the whole Unreal community, not just the students of this course, because a lot of issues, bugs, tutorials, and advice are shared on the gamedev.tv website. I dare say that this community has an equal amount of value to the Unreal developer as a UE documentation, because where the documentation is scarce, the community fills the rest."

- Dean Babic

This course started as a runaway success on Kickstarter. The course is over 50 hours of content and 300+ lectures.

Ben has a degree in computing from Imperial College London, and a physics diploma from the Open University.

He started working for himself at the age of 15, and never looked back. He's explored careers as varied as being a commercial pilot, stunt-man, rock climbing instructor, and more. None of these provided a continued challenge, and stable income in the same way technology did.

After building and selling a home computer support business, he became an angel investor and business mentor in Cambridge UK. He fell in love with teaching game development through one of his investments, and now spends all of his time sharing this passion with people like you.

He can't wait to help you experience the fulfilment, and financial freedom, that having a deep understanding of technology brings.
