Microsoft has provided a great opportunity for those who love to get involved in the process of game development in the future. Xbox Academy is a free online workshop for game development tutorials that are set to be held next week on September 12 and September 13.

Announced as an opportunity to “inspire the next generation of games creators, and to give them an insight into game design and development,” Microsoft runs the Xbox Academy workshop with some veterans from Playground Games, Games London, and East London Arts and Music. The 90-minute online session will focus on the basics of game design and the whole process of developing games. You will also get to learn how to use developer kits like Unity to give birth to your wildest ideas.

Maria Lee and Ryan Greene, senior producer and senior game designer from Playground Games, along with Curtis Le Blanc, director of games from East London Arts and Music, will present the show and talk about their most useful experiences in game development. Moreover, Phil Graham-Koranteng from Microsoft Store’s training team will join the presenting team as well. Maria Lee has been an art producer at Playground Games for over a year and recently has become the senior producer at the studio.

The workshop will be available at four different times on September 12 and September 13. The number of participants is limited, which means you should register as soon as you can if you want to take part in Xbox Academy next week.

Before the beginning of the show, you will need to download the latest version of the Unity engine along with its 3D Game Kit resource files in order to follow the development steps along with the presenters.

Last but not least, attendees at the Xbox Academy workshop must be over 16 years old.
