In this game development course, you'll learn how to make your first game using the Unity game engine and the C# programming language.
Here is a list of the keys things that you will learn by watching this course :
First of all, you'll have a very good understanding of the basics of Unity once you've finished this course: you'll know how to navigate its interface, create objects, manipulate those, use the prefab system, and lots more.
You'll learn all about the C# fundamentals, in other words, understand what are variables, functions, arrays, loops, conditionals, and a wealth of other key programming tools. You'll also be given challenges so that you don't only copy what we do but gain a much deeper understanding of this amazing programming language.
Once we've covered the basics of both Unity and C# we'll create an entire game: Raining Apocalypse!
There we will learn how to make simple game art using a 2D drawing application of your choice like Ps or Gimp, and how to rig and animate your 2D characters in Unity.
Create a simple player controller, falling hazards, and a spawning system in C#.
Learn how to use Unity's UI to make an awesome main menu, game over screen, and to display the player's health.
Learn how to add cool sounds and music to your game.
And of course, publish your game on Itch io for the world to play and enjoy :)!
