October 19, 2011 Sanborn, NY – Studica, Inc., the education source for software and technology products announces two new programs that make game development technology accessible to students and secondary schools. “To address the current shortage of game developers, Unity Technologies is working with Studica to make their game development platform affordable for education and students. The newest offerings address the reality of shrinking secondary school budgets and the interest graduate students have expressed in purchasing full commercial products at a discount”, -said Studica President & CEO Frank Nanfara.
The Unity Pro Game Academy (UPGA) is a comprehensive package designed for secondary schools. The package, which addresses game design, development, 3D modeling, concept art, programming, audio and storytelling, is the perfect solution for secondary schools that want to bring game development into the curriculum. Secondary schools that currently have animation programs with software such as Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage, Mudbox, ZBrush, Modo, Lightwave and many others will find this to be the perfect add-on to their programs. Students will learn how they can easily create games and simulations for their desktop, the web, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android phones and tablets, XBox 360, Wii, Playstation 3 and more. Students will benefit not only from an educational perspective but also in preparation for careers in the industry. This is a great introduction to the world of game design at the lowest educational price on the market.
Students have been asking to purchase a full commercial version of Unity at a special student discount. The Unity Pro full commercial product is a non-watermarked version that can be used to create professional ready-to-market visualizations and games. In the past, this version has been expensive for students on limited budgets but now they have the opportunity to purchase Unity Pro for a great value at www.studica.com/unity. This is a perfect solution for both students who want to use Unity as a tool for business to boost their income and those who will soon be graduating.
Studica is the education source for software and technology products. Utilizing a focused approach, Studica has outside and inside sales personnel, and an intuitive e-commerce site, an informative blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds that work effectively together to serve the education community. Serving local and world education markets, Studica has offices in the US, Canada, the UK, Brazil, Denmark, and Sweden, with more planned in the near future.
