This is the online game development school that was a runaway success on Kickstarter. Learn how to create video games using Unity 3D, the free-to-use game development tool. We start super simple so you'll be ok with little or no experience. With our online tutorials, you'll be amazed what you can achieve. Benefit from our world-class support (see the number of discussions). Go on to build several games including a full 3D version of Pong with an online multiplayer scoreboard, and more. We are adding closed captions (subtitles) Currently the first 30% of videos are captioned, and the rest are coming. This means you can understand us better if English isn't your first language, and even take the course without audio! You will have access to a course forum where you can discuss topics on a course-wide basis, or down to the individual video. Our thriving discussion forum will help you learn and share ideas with other students. Check out our reviews to see how people love this feature. The course is project-based, so you will not just be learning dry programming concepts, but applying them immediately to real indie games as you go. All the project files will be included, as well as additional references and resources - you'll never get stuck. There are talking-head videos, powerful diagrams, quality screencasts and more. Oh, and it's just bigger and better than the competition. See the length and the reviews. For each demo game you build you will follow this process...
- Be challenged to build the entire game yourself.
- Be shown step-by step how to build it.
- Be challenged to apply, and re-apply your knowledge regularly.
You will get full lifetime access
for a single one-off fee. The creators are qualified and experienced coders and avid gamers, so are able to explain complex concepts clearly, as well as entertain along the way. Most courses teach scripting using only C#. We will be teaching in C#, and translating to UnityScript and Boo
By the end of the course you'll be very confident in the basics of coding and game development, and hungry to learn more. What this course DOESN'T cover...
Whereas this course is already huge, we can't possibly cover everything in that time. Here are some things we will not be covering...
- Unity Pro features.
- Performance optimisation.
- Editor plugins or modifications.
- Procedural generation*
- Physics engine modification*
* Separate mini-courses to cover these topics coming in December. Anyone who wants to learn to create games: Unity 3D is a fantastic platform which enables you to make production-quality games.
Furthermore these games can be created for Windows, MacOS, iOS (even iOS 8), Android and Web from a single source!
If you're a complete beginner, we'll teach you all the coding and game design principles you'll need. If you're an artist, we'll teach you to bring your assets to life. If you're a coder, we'll teach you game design principles. Dive in now, you won't be disappointed!
