Note: This class was recorded with Unity 4. It will work for the most part with Unity 5+ but certain features may not be exactly the same.
What do you do when you have a great idea for a game but no programming background? 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!
Here’s what you’ll learn in 4 weeks:
Together with the class, we will re-create two gaming classics to get you started with game development – Breakout and Doodle Jump! You will add your own artistic style and creative flair to each classic game. Feedback will be provided throughout the course and be sure to attend the 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.
