Lets Learn C++ and Make a 2D Dungeon Game!
What you'll learn
- Fundamental C++ into Advanced
- Basic 2D Game Development
- Windows Operating System recommended
In this course I'll start out your C++ journey from the beginning and move you through advanced whilst moving towards making a little dungeon game.
Everything is in here from the very starting points, so the course is good for beginners or those returning to C++ who want to brush up on their skills. At the college I used to teach at, this content would cover subjects C++ 1, C++ 2 and Basic Game Dev with C++ (each of those subjects cost like $1.5k AUD). If you are studying at a Uni or College, this course makes a good companion resource for those you with C++ subjects.
Through out the course I provide project check points and reference projects if you get lost along the way. This course runs a bit over 16hrs, so take your time on it. Here is a list of some of the things we run through on this course:
variables and math
input and output
if statement, while and for loops
arrays, 1d and 2d
classes, inheritance and polymorphism
pointers and dynamic memory
rendering and animation
basic 2d game logic
and a bunch more!
C++ is still very relevant in many software engineering jobs but also to lots of game engines such as Unreal. Its a good starting language for many looking to get into software development of some kind.
Let's make a sweet dungeon game!
Who this course is for:
- Beginner coders/programmers interested in C++
- Uni students looking for more C++ learning resources
- C++ developers wanting to brush up on some skills and make a game
Also known as 2 Hit Matt. I'm the lead developer and artist at 2 Hit Studio, but since we're a 2 man band, my role changes often. 2 Hit Studio is a small indie game dev team working on games such as Fatal Theory, One Heart, Blitz Smash and Starslinger Kings. I love working with C++ wherever possible and action games are my game of choice, preferably 2D with a little Japanese influence.
I've been teaching at a private college for a few years and I'm now starting to branch out onto online.
Also I have two kids and they are way awesome.
