Virtual Game Development Workshop

We are also excited by the opportunity to help you develop your own virtual simulation game.  Having already created multiple virtual simulation games, CAN-Sim now has a process streamlined for ease of access and development.  Knowing how valuable time is, we offer a variety of cost-effective workshops tailored to you and your team’s specific needs.  These workshops walk participants through the process of designing, filming, and using the CAN-Sim virtual game template to make the game development process both easy and fun.  Please let us know if we can arrange a time to discuss this further.

Next Workshop:  TBD
