for Students

Amber Academy is an educational program that aims to share its educational resources with the entire gaming industry: from students, to other peeps, and last but not last, with our colleagues.

About

Amber’s social mission is embedded in its core values, so it’s no surprise that our team was always inspired to go beyond the studio walls and use their experience to improve the social and environmental condition of our city and community.

Among all social issues we considered tackling, we identified education is the area where we could make the largest impact. We asked ourselves how we can improve access to information and how we engage students in the process of learning game development.

Crash courses

Since 2017, we try to share with the students as much about game development as possible, in an informal, fun and engaging way.
Each event has two parts: a tour of the studio and a workshop. The tour is meant to show them our work environment and how the Amber people create the magic.
Guided by our dedicated mentors, every workshop tackles different disciplines of gaming, involving two steps: the basic notions, followed by and empirical practice.

Game Jams

The most applied event of them all, the game jam’s purpose is to challenge the students to build their own game from scratch, while learning to collaborate and practice their game making skills.

Summer Camp

Summarising the two events mentioned above, Summer Camp is the highlight of every Amber Academy year: for two weeks, the most dedicated participants gather around for an intense gaming bootcamp. Compared to a Crash Course, who serves as a brief introduction in game development (2-3 hours), Summer Camp goes deeper into the main disciplines for a full week.
Be ready for the coolest part: after these two weeks (one for highschool students & one for college students), the most dedicated peeps get the chance to receive an internship here at Amber!
