Meet the Gamedev Trainwreck Instructor: Zac Pierce!

Jan 24th 2020

Game-U LIVE has a new channel - Gamedev Trainwreck! Sundays at 7:00 PM EST, LIVE students learn what happens when you combine a game dev Pro and a cool development challenge. (Create a drivable, physics-driven race car, anyone?)

But who's the Pro?

Introducing Zac Pierce! Zac's a graduate of the University of Akron, holding a bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a minor in Entrepreneurship. As a professional contractor who teaches game development at local high schools, Zac published Bombfest (Jan. 2019) and helped create the Switch release of Earth Night (Dec. 2019).

Zac's also passionate about teaching and an experienced live-streamer, ready to rise to a challenge, crack a joke, and pull in suggestions from his audience. He's joining Game-U LIVE to show you what it's like to build a game from scratch. With no script and no prep, he'll work towards completing a new challenge each week, giving you insight into the process real game developers experience as they work towards a finished project. From brainstorming to designing, coding, troubleshooting, and testing, you see it all!

Join Zac Sunday, Jan. 26th, from 7PM - 9PM EST for his debut episode, Where the Rubber Meets the Road. Cheer him on in the chat and be sure to offer suggestions and ideas to help shape his game!

Game-U LIVE is excited to welcome Zac as the newest LIVE instructor. Game on, Zac!
