About Us

The Mission of the Game Development Guild

 Alex Chacon is the Guild’s lead game developer and an experienced teacher in game design and computer programming. With over a decade of programming and independent game development experience the Alex has put together several published and unpublished games, animated videos, books and other projects available on the Google Play store, Amazon.com and other distribution channels. In addition Alex has worked in many different public libraries and a few high schools teaching video game development as both a volunteer and as a professional for hire. 

Over the past five years the passion for introducing others to easy game development and the excitement of helping others achieve their goals has made Alex want to share the knowledge and tricks gained in those years of experience. For the past two years we have been working to improve our simple, practical and efficient system to teach a custom game design curriculum and the results from our work in public libraries / schools have been very positive so far. Our goal is to make it easy for anyone to learn the basic processes to design a game and also to make it fun. The social component of having friends / mentors to help learn this difficult skill is also important for the continued development for any student. That’s why the Guild’s mission is to teach but also to help connect groups of people who want to learn so that they can support each other.

As referenced in the letter above our work teaching game programming at libraries has been a success and we will continue with new classes beginning soon at libraries in the greater Denver, Colorado area. The lessons we teach help to remove the barriers of entry into game development for each and every student. We hope that others share this same vision and will help us to reach out and teach more people.

We do remote game development tutoring through Google Hangouts / Skype so you can learn from anywhere. If you have any questions or would like to know more about one of our services or courses please feel free to contact us:

Here is a Showcase of Some of the Video Games Created by The Guild!

We’ve been designing games and putting together projects for over a decade. Throughout this time there have been several unreleased, unfinished or just unnoticed games that show what kind of projects are possible using the system that we have documented and organized into the Guild’s curriculum. Join the Game Development Guild today and start learning how to make games like these for yourself!
