Staying true to its mission to provide kids with educational and safe online games, FunGuy Studio has recently launched its educational program to teach kids about game development and design last January 3, 2011. The program aims to uphold FunGuy Studio's social-responsibility to share its resources and talent to teach kids about the fast-growing world of game development. Alongside their continuing effort to promote and support the gaming industry in the Philippines, several lucky high school and college students were chosen to be trained by the company's game designers and developers.

Providing one on one hands-on tutorial, the participants will be taught the ropes on game development, focusing on basic Flash animation and actionscripting. As well as in game design by allowing them to provide suggestions and creative input on the design aspect.
