Who this course is for:
- intermediate Unreal Engine programmers looking to learn how to create a third person action RPG combat system system
I have a passion for game development, I am a senior in college studying computer programming, and I am a huge fan of Action RPGs. So, I put my knowledge and passions together to create Action RPG mechanics in Unreal Engine. I have experience in Unreal Engine, I am the creator of the Advanced ARPG Combat system & I have created many tutorials on the UnrealRPGMastery YouTube channel.
I focus on doing things the Unreal way and I emphasize creating code that is clean and easy to work with. I now wish to share my knowledge and passion with the Unreal community by teaching all the systems I have created.
