Hi I'm Richard Hart
I have a passion, well … maybe a bit of an obsession when it comes to effective learning and teaching.
I've spent the last decade researching and engaging with learning from the perspective of a teacher, a student, an entrepreneur and a game/interactive developer. These experiences have given me a unique and powerful understanding how people learn and will continue to learn in the future.
I'm also a veteran instructor at the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver, where I currently teach advanced technology courses.
When I"m not creating and teaching new courses on Udemy, I help show organizations both large and small how to effectively teach and learn by leveraging the latest research in technology and psychology.
I assist in the creation of effective online courses, training videos and tutorials and also help design and develop educationally focused interactive content and games for mobile devices.

Hi, I'm Richard Hart.
I'm a professional interactive developer and technology instructor with over a decade of experience. I started my first game studio in 2007 because I believed that gaming can change the world.
I created this course because I wanted to make gaming accessible to anyone who wants to learn, regardless of their previous background.
I've literally taught thousands of students how to master technology and I can teach you too.
In my unique course aimed at complete beginners, I'll take you step by step through the game making process and show you how to unlock the power of Unity 3D.
I chose Unity 3d because I believe that it's not only the easiest game development platform to learn, but also the most powerful and relevant platform in the industry for people who want to create 3D games or Mac, PC, and iOS and Android mobile devices.
Did you know you can download Unity 3D for free today by visiting http://unity3d.com Unity runs on both Macs and PCs, so no need to choose sides, use the version that works best for you!
While I'm teaching you the basics of Unity, I also be revealing the fundamentals of what games are made of and begin to show you how to harness the real power of play in your games.

There are lot's of game courses out there, but if your looking for something a little different, something that goes way beyond just explaining tools and technology, this is the course for you.
But don't just take my word for it, check out over 70 course reviews my students have written so far and find out why they've made this one of the most popular game courses on Udemy.
"This course was great to get into Unity and learn the basics and get a foundation to start making games with Unity. Everything is explained clearly, and the tools and information are given to you to keep learning yourself and expand after the course is over. I would recommend to anyone that is starting off in Unity!"
"I was impressed with just the first few classes, and Richard Hart keeps adding more material to keep push the limits. Amazing effort and great value."
"I was afraid of Unity until I started this course, thinking it will be very hard to grasp. This course gave me that extra push, helping me a lot with making me interested in further researching Unity and how it works. In my particular case, this course was the best Ive found for starting up using Unity, having in mind the fact that I already know programming concepts and a little of C#."
Finally, I'm so convinced I can help you learn to make games with Unity, that I'll put my money where my mouth is. Udemy has a 30 day money back guarantee. So sign up, go through my entire course, watch all the videos, try all the code samples, and if in the first 30 days you find this course hasn't taught you the basics of making games with Unity 3D, just contact Udemy and request a refund. It's that simple.
So if you really want to learn to make games, sign up and start learning today!
Not a 3d modeller? What if you could just scan things in your environment and add use them in your games? We may be one step closer with Occipital's new Structure sensor!

Very good course..Richard..You have a big heart to share such extensive info on not only Unity 3D but also the need for Gamification. Your choice of videos augmenting the idea of gamification is extremely appealing & inspiring. More power to you. Enjoyed a true primer on Gamification and the power of Unity 3D. Warmest regards Suresh
A complete rip-off! Amateur, low-quality voice-over, spelling mistakes, shallow or non-existing explanation on coding, poor presentation of 3D modeling concepts. The final "bonus" videos are a disgrace. You'll have to hear things like : "Eventually you'll be able to create particle systems like these..." and then he shows some examples of the most amateur, poorly developed particle systems and doesn't even explain how it's done. I could go on and on about this stupid "course", but i think you get the idea. Don't get fooled by the good reviews! He probably asked his Canadian friends to write them. Get your 9 bucks and go spend it on beer. You'll be better off.
I took this course mostly out of curiosity about how games are made. I've been an avid gamer from the Atari 2600 up to the modern PS3 (and hopefully soon PS4). I dabbled with programming when I was younger, and was interested to see how it all comes together to make games. Richard has done a great job of covering the basics of this and has satisfied my curiosity. A lot of the bonus material was great too, and gave me insight into the future of gaming and the psychology of play. Overall it was a very enjoyable course, and has piqued my interest to the point I may pursue game design further.
This course is very easy to understand and follow through with tutorials. It's fun and fulfills expectations within C# scripts. I recommend this course for those who would like to get their hands into creating games with a complier. ValeryWarren
Anyone Can Learn to Make a Game is an excellent starter course that lets you experience what making and designing games are all about. The courses are well thought out, and each video is short and concise, which helps you learn in a focused and step-by-step manner. In addition to a myriad of great walkthroughs demonstrating how to use one of the best game building platform, Unity, Richard Hart also gives you valuable insights into designing concepts and gaming theories, which will be useful throughout your entire career, should you decide to work in the gaming industry. I would highly recommend any of Richard's courses, and have plans to continue learning from Richard to further my skills in software development.
