Brandon is teaching a 4-week beginner class on making games on Skillshare, starting next month! We’ve worked with Skillshare in designing a course that’s easy to digest, and worked with Unity and Hutong Games in providing top students with awesome free tools. If you have been playing games and been on the sideline waiting to dive into game development, this is a great first step!
What do you do when you have a great idea for a game but no programming background? Before you give up, let me introduce you to the world of indie game development. With the technology and tools available today, you can start creating the game you’ve always wanted to make as soon as, well, today!
Together with the class, we will re-create two gaming classics to get you started with game development – Breakout and Doodle Jump! Feedback will be provided throughout the course and be sure to attend the weekly Office Hour on Google Hangout for Q&A. We will build these two games for computers – PCs and Macs, and towards the end of the course we will discuss what to do if you want to build games for mobile, tablets, browsers, and/or consoles.
