Godot Game Development for Beginners
What you'll learn
- Developing games with Godot
- Coding with GDScript
- Godot's node and scene architecture
- 2D Platformer mechanics
- Setting up UIs with Godot
- Basic understanding of programming logic.
Discover the fundamentals of game development with the Godot game engine!
Godot, a fast-growing engine popular for being free, open-source, and easy to use, allows you to create a variety of games using both 2D and 3D views. With its dynamic node system that differs from many other popular engines, and its personal programming language GDScript, the engine gives you the tools needed to develop platformers, RPGs, strategy games, and more. In addition, with Godot’s generous license, you can alter the engine freely to expand it to suit your needs.
In this course, you will start learning in-demand skills with Godot by developing a simple 2D platformer from scratch. Not only will you possess a complete game by the end of the course, but you’ll also master the foundations necessary to expand into developing more complex games with Godot.
You will learn how to:
Set up Godot for game development projects
Create player characters and get them moving with GDScript
Implement enemies and coins with collision detection
Manage Godot’s camera to follow the player character
Utilize Godot’s UI system to display scores
Develop a 2D platformer level using tiles
… and more!
