Corona SDK and other Game Development Tutorials


Welcome to and thanks for visiting That’s So Panda! That’s So Panda focuses on mobile game development for platforms such as iOS, Android and others. Along the way, I wanted to share some of my experiences and lessons in mobile game development.

I currently have several games available on iTunes, Amazon Appstore and Google Play. If you would like to take a look at what games we have available, or you wish to support That’s So Panda, please visit That’s So Panda Games.

 A Little History

That’s So Panda started about a year ago when a friend introduced me to a platform called Corona SDK. At the time, my friend was telling me about how a 14 year old created a very popular game for the mobile device using Corona SDK. At the time, I didn’t realize the power that the Corona SDK platform could offer and I didn’t realize how fast and quickly I could develop mobile games with the Corona SDK platform. So, I ended up creating just one mobile game for the Android Platform and did not revisit the platform for awhile.

Then, I proposed to my girlfriend (now my wife) and was introduced to the very real costs of a wedding. We had to buy a cake, reserve a venue, buy her a dress and the costs of the wedding quickly climbed and I started looking into other ways to generate revenue outside of my day-to-day job.

At this moment, which was a few months after the proposal, I remembered a conversation that I had with a friend about creating games with Corona SDK. I remembered how easy it was to create my very first game and quickly I could publish these mobile apps to iTunes, Amazon Appstore and Google Play. Ever since, I’ve been designing, coding and publishing mobile games for all three platforms. Recently, I’ve been releasing my games to the Barnes & Noble Nook.


Now, I want to be able to share my experiences and lessons that I have learned along the way with you. This desire to help others as led me to starting writing tutorial on That’s So Panda and offer them to you. Everything on That’s So Panda is a learning process and if you tips, comments, suggestions please do not hesitate to contact me!
