Welcome to the very first Bolt (Visual Scripting) Course on Udemy!!!
I'm happy to release this course and look forward to your feedback. Even if you do not choose to purchase my course I strongly encourage you to give Visual Scripting (formally Bolt) a try. It's a great tool for beginning or experienced developers.
Why Use Vispual Scripting for Making Fun Video Games?
Developing Games can be very fun and rewarding once you know how. And with Unity's Visual Scripting Tool (Known as Bolt when this course was created) it has never been easier to build full robust games without any programming.
I've been a business application & game developer for over 30 years. I honestly think Unity's Visual Scripting tools is one of the best that I have worked with. In this course you too will quickly see the real power of Visual Scripting as we almost effortlessly build a fun idle tycoon game like adVenture Capitalist. Even if you have never programmed before, this course will allow you to get started building the game in a matter of minutes.
Over the past 30 years I've developed games in a variety of platforms and languages. On Udemy alone I have successful game courses on Odoo, Python, C#, and PlayMaker. I really cannot say enough good things about Unity's Visual Scripting Engine.
It is easy to use and integrates nearly seamlessly with the Unity Editor.
How does Unity's Visual Scripting compare to Playmaker?
In addition to Unity's built in scripting there are several other popular visual scripting assets also available. One of the most popular is Playmaker. Playmaker allows you to use finite state machines to build games. Unity's Visual Scripting platform also provides state machine diagrams that perform much like Playmaker in managing states. The big benefit of Unity's Visual Scripting however is that the scripting flow diagrams themselves map directly to the C# and UnityEngine libraries. This gives you a great advantage if you already know C# when coming into Visual Scripting in Unity. Once I understood how to connect units and create flow graphs I was able to build games with virtually no learning curve at all as I already know C#.
Playmaker however uses custom actions that you use to power your state diagrams. These work well and Playmaker is a great asset. Unfortunately having to learn proprietary actions and commands is a big drawback of playMaker. Especially for those who intend to further their game development skills by learning C#.
Unity's Visual Scripting can help you learn C#
If you are a new C# programmer who is finding the syntax of the code gets in your way I can't recommend Bolt enough. Even better, you can configure it to use real C# syntax in the visual units. I really enjoy how I can use real C# methods with the exact same arguments I would use in real C# scripts. It's like intellisense on steroids. This tight tie in with C# makes it that much easier to incorporate what you learn from Bolt into improving your C# skills.
Bolt allows you to focus on game design and achieving results rather than all the syntax of writing code. If you are an experienced C# developer you owe it to yourself to take a look at Bolt for prototyping and approaching game design from an alternative perspective.
Bolt offers a rich API so it is easy to integrate your own C# scripts with Unity's Visual Scripting flow graphs.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wishes to learn how to make Video Games or Learn New Ways to Make Video Games
- C# Developers who wish to get more familiar with Game Design and the API's
- Beginning Developers who wish to learn how develop games and later transition to C# Development
- Developers who Learn Better Visually

First Class Game Studios
Greg is the founder of First Class Game Studios, a small indie game studio that led off with a cutting edge experimental game project NeuroMage. NeuroMage combines exciting spell-casting duels, gorgeous imagery, and cutting-edge biosensor technology.
Using NeuroSky's Mindwave - a research-grade wireless EEG headset, Greg created a game in which you learn to harness the power of your own mind to build an arsenal of powerful spells and defeat your opponent.
Now, Greg has taken what he has learned through many years of business and game design architecture and put into making fun Udemy courses.
Odoo Class Videos
Odoo Class is recognized as the #1 resource for professional Odoo videos. Thousands of Odoo Developers, Odoo Partners, and Odoo integrators have subscribed to Odoo Class to further their knowledge of Odoo.
Now we are taking what we have learned in Odoo training and making the best Odoo videos and bringing our best courses to Udemy students.
Starting with our first video products Odoo 8 Essentials and Ubuntu Workshop OdooClass has now built a library of more than 200 professional Odoo videos.
Greg is also author of Working With Odoo. Available on Amazon.
We are excited to bring these latest courses to Udemy.
Here is what some Odoo Class subscribers have said about our Odoo videos:
I am completely new to Linux, Python, Postgres and everything Odoo. Odooclass videos have been pivotal in my learning process and in my opinion is the best resource out there for beginners especially for those like me migrating from an entirely different development background. The videos are very clear and relevant. I would highly recommend them to anyone new to Odoo.
- Peter S.
I just wanted to say that the videos are great and have really opened my eyes to the capabilities with Odoo.
- Joey K.
First off I want to comment on all of the quality video editions you have recently added to your library. They have been tremendously helpful and I have been recommending your service to many people.
- John P.
I recommend Odoo Class for anyone want to learn odoo, they have a very high quality videos for both functional and technical
