About Legacy U

Legacy U

Raised on a diet of videogames, continuous Facebook/Twitter updates, and mobile apps, students expect educational products to include meaningful interactivity, high production values, and continuous online access to peers.


Legacy U is dedicated to creating learning games and simulations that are designed to appeal to today's media savy students and young professionals. We are expert at using game mechanics, social networks, and context rich feedback to engage students while learning. We know that incentives based on completing tasks, collecting items, unlocking rewards, dynamic progress bars and competitive leaderboards, can motivate students (both individually and collectively) to master complicated educational content.


Since 1998, Legacy's VP of Production, Dr. Craig Brannon, has managed the creation of more than 35 RealLife Games® and simulations and has been at the forefront of designing engaging and educationally effective products. Craig leads a team of creative interactive designers and producers at Legacy who will help you imagine your next product for today's always-plugged in, socially-connected, technology-savy student.
