Senior Game-Play Programmer

About Blake Ratliff, MProf

After discovering a passion for game development as a high school junior in 2013, Blake went on to attend accelerated programs at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England and Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland. In his time there, he received his bachelors in gaming technology and his masters in games development, wrote a game development course, and delivered it to hundreds of teenagers with the same new-found excitement for development that Blake discovered at their age. The K20 Center’s Game-Based Learning department develops educational video games as part of our five-phase plan to transform conventional schools into high-achieving, interactive learning communities. Now a Game-Play Programmer in said department, Blake is able to blend his passions for video game development and education into one project at a time. He spends most of his time writing and testing game code, documenting tools and development processes, and developing tools to track user engagement and provide statistical evidence of the efficacy of game-based learning.
