Like games? Great! We do too, and want to help you get started creating games of your own, even if you’ve never even considered it before.
Using Scirra’s Construct 2, you can create games for multiple platforms including the Windows Store with no coding required. Join fellow students to get expert help from Microsoft and earn $100 per game (via the “Keep the Cash” promotion) for publishing your games to the Windows Store. We’ll also have lunch and prizes on hand for completed games and more!
