Interested? We are currently looking for students to test out our curriculum in July 2019.
You (or your child) might be good fit if you:
Are aged 7-25*
Have an interest in gaming
Experience mental health challenges
*Even if you’re not in the age range, let us know! We’re open to testing our curriculum with a wide variety of people!
WHAT YOU’LL CREATE
In around 7-10 lessons, you’ll create a basic 2D platformer that expresses your own personal story — with your own ideas, code, art, and sounds! At the end, you’ll be able to upload your creation and share it with the world!
WHAT You’ll LearN
Get a basic introduction to the C# scripting language and the Unity Game Engine.
Tell your own story through a video game, with a combination of code, art, writing, and sound.
Art + Music
You’ll also have the option of making your own game art assets and music!

What Makes Us Different
A focus on mental health
At Cheat Code Academy, we cater specifically for youth with mental health challenges. With Joey’s warm and welcoming personality, flexible teaching style, and his unique background in teaching, technology, and mental health, we do our best to accommodate you or your child’s needs. We focus on 1-on-1 and small group teaching settings to ensure you get the attention that you need!
Curious about what our community has created so far?
Over the past few weeks, a small group of volunteer programmers/artists/writers have been creating a game called, “The Chase”, conveying what it feels like to experience anxiety. Check out the game below!
