Turn your students from players into makers.

We believe that students should show that they can be creators and problem solvers, and no multiple choice test or online quiz can demonstrate these skills as effectively as creating, debugging and iterating upon a game that they are proud to call their own!

Teachers love GameSalad!

Instead of fighting frustrating syntax errors, hunting down missing semicolons, or poring over intimidating sample code, my students are visualizing their ideas in days and experiencing the thrill of seeing their work being enjoyed by others.

GameSalad is one of the most effective Gaming Platforms I’ve used. GameSalad has a lower barrier to entry, so that I can teach computational thinking skills to students.

GameSalad has inspired my students to use their creativity. Each day, I see my students jump right into their games and strive to create something new and different. They are excited when their hard work pays off and they’ve created a workable, fun game to show their friends.

GameSalad’s low barrier of entry and powerful toolset is great for education. Students in my classes are learning the fundamentals of game design while actually designing their first game at the same time. Some have already taken on their own side-projects!

With GameSalad, students are not just having fun but also changing their lives with a career option they love…It’s a great self-esteem booster for them to see people enjoying their work. We’re a college and career readiness program. GameSalad is helping us fulfill our mission.
