What you'll learn

- have basic familiarity with using your computer
The amazing free and open source game engine you've been waiting for is a joy to use. In this course we'll take you from an absolute beginner with no experience in coding at all to someone able to make 2D and 3D games in this lovely little engine.
As a student in this course, you'll go through a series of five projects, each bigger, more awesome and more feature rich than the last.
Loony Lips - a simple word game that will teach you the basics of coding and of Godot
Hoppy Days - a delightful 2D platform game starring a cute bunny
Heist Meisters - a tense 2D top-down stealth game
Cubedude Kickabout - a local multiplayer 3D football/soccer game
Food fight - a third person shooter
We'll be working with GDScript, Godot's powerful python based language that will allow us to get awesome results very quickly. You'll be provided with all the assets you need and the skills to take your games (and your future projects) even further.
Some of the things we'll cover include;
Variables, Arrays and Dictionaries
Tilemaps and Gridmaps
