Course Description

Update 2nd August 2017: The majority of the course applies equally to Unity 2017, however there will be some minor changes differences. The user interface is very similar, and the underlying principles remain the same.

This is the online game development school that was a runaway success on Kickstarter. As a result there are English closed-captions throughout.

Learn how to create video games using Unity 3D, the free-to-use game development tool. We start super simple so you need no prior experience or Unity of coding! With our online tutorials, you'll be amazed what you can achieve.

Benefit from our world-class support from both other students, and Ben is on the forums regularly. Go on to build several games including a full 3D version of Pong with an online multiplayer scoreboard, and more.

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.

Unity 5: The first part of the course is taught in Unity 4. 6, as this is well established and stable. When you get to Bowlmaster we upgrade to Unity 5, and start using it's great new features. You can use Unity 5 from the start if you wish, with only minor code differences.

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#.

You will learn C#, including Test Driven Development, a highly valuable skill. 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...

  • Performance optimization.
  • Editor plugins or modifications.
  • Physics engine modification*

* Separate mini-course to cover these this now available.

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 9), 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.

Note: access to this course comes with an optional, free community site where you can share games and 3D models, as well as connect with other students.

Dive in now, you won't be disappointed!

Instructor Biography

Ben Tristem, GameDev.tv Founder :: Entrepreneur :: Passionate Teacher

Hi, I'm Ben. I have a degree in computing from Imperial College London, and a physics diploma from the Open University.

I started working for myself at the age of 15, and never looked back. I explored careers as varied as being a commercial pilot, stunt-man, rock climbing instructor, and more. None of these provided a continued challenge, and stable income in the same way technology does.

After building and selling a home computer support business, I became an angel investor and business mentor here in Cambridge UK. I fell in love with teaching game development through one of my investments, and I now spend all of my time sharing my passion with people like you.

I can't wait to help you experience the fulfilment, and financial freedom, that having a deep understanding of technology brings.

So why not start learning to make games with me and my team now? Click the world link to see all of my team's courses.

See you soon!
