    Looks like Train2Game have completely closed their doors; I always found this company an interesting case, they were affiliated with a well known celebrity, and their qualifications were somewhat recognized, however their practices were corrupt.. I just feel they went about things completely wrong. It's odd as there are many people that will tell you Train2Game is awesome yet there are many that will tell you they are not.. I remember they were on watchdog once...

    Train2Game did have a well known game developer on the board and the training materials didn't look terrible.
    Personally I think the format, sales practices and lack of vetting of students was a bit sketchy, as well as the large up front payments or finance plans also run by MIS affiliated companies with no refunds.

    There are far cheaper ways to learn game dev from Udemy to Unity and plenty of others.

    I found this pretty funny at the time.

    I’ve always wanted to try my hand at game dev but no idea where to start.
