I really loved doing this course. Learnt how to make a simple game and make it really interesting! I loved how the easily the instructor was able to teach us and make us curious throughout the course.
The lecture videos from Professor Fran and his old friend were surprisingly entertaining. Kudos to the team because they were able to make it fun, informative, and engaging throughout the four weeks.

Excelent introductory course, it explains the basic concepts and keys to create and develop games before writing a single line of programming.

This course offered a great way to lightly touch on all the basics by guiding us through building a board game as a more hands-on experience.
The content of the course is arranged quite smoothly, and the teacher's lecture videos and peer learning are very interesting and meaningful.
