Playcrafting does something that not many organizations can brag about. They've created a platform that serves as a foundation, upon which, people of all ages can build and showcase their skills in game design. Not only that, they've built an exciting, nurturing, and diverse community of individuals who share a passion for games. Teaching through Playcrafting has opened the doors to this wonderful community, and we are proud to be a part of it.

From Our Friends Word Around Town
When you sponsor a Playcrafting event, you know exactly where that sponsorship goes and they work hard to ensure what you want to get out of the sponsorship in terms of ROI happens, while making sure it contributes and is of value to the community. Events are amazingly organized and they really treat it as a partnership, not a sponsorship.- Microsoft
Some of our best experiences have come from being able to help the students build their game from initial stages to a playable, incredibly impressive demo with the potential to become a successful business. Zapling Studios is one example of this, and they have ended up working with us as a result or this partnership. That, and one of the Jonas Brothers attended a Demo & Play!- Pollen

For the past six months, I've been teaching virtual reality courses for PlayCrafting, and it has been and continues to be a fantastic experience. Dan and his crew do a very professional job organizing these events and getting the word out to potential students. Playcrafting gives me everything I need so I can focus on what I love best, showing up and teaching my class. The students have been awesome and I feel it's such a privilege to be able to teach them about VR.
