You’ve heard about how beneficial it is to learn to code, but if you’re like most people, you haven’t found a reason to learn. What if we told you that with just 130 hours of coding education, completed from your sofa, you could launch your very own video game? How’s that for some motivation?
You’ll kick things off with courses on Unity, the world-leading, free-to-use game development tool, where you’ll learn to code in the powerful modern language, C#. Rather than boring lectures, you’ll actually code your first five games from scratch, including a side-scrolling jumping game, top-down space shooter, quiz game, and more.
Next up, you’ll dive into Unreal Engine, another popular game engine used to create hyper-realistic environments. You’ll learn to code in C++, another powerful industry-standard language, from scratch, how to put object-oriented programming into practice, and even how to use sound effects and audio to add depth to your games.
Finally, you’ll tackle Blender, the free-to-use 3D production suite for making 3D models and assets for your games. It’s another project-based course, so you’ll immediately apply your new skills to real 3D models.
The courses are presented by GameDev.tv, a group of qualified and experienced coders and avid gamers who’ve helped over a million students on their game development journey. They even take your education outside of the strict e-learning environment into community events online and game jams you can join.
