At the end of this short course you'll have programmed your first game. You'll learn gameplay development fundamentals by really doing it – writing and running real code on your own machine.

Each step of the course has the source code attached exactly as it should look at that time (click "View Resources" then "Downloadable Resources"), for you to compare to or pick up from, so you can't get stuck!

Begin Your Game Programming Journey the Proven Way

"Make the simplest game possible." "Program a ball and paddle project." "Practice by first remaking something from the 1970's." All beginning developers hear this advice from more experienced peers... because it works!

By following this approach you will:

  • Learn design from a fun classic that people know and enjoy.
  • Start your practice today – now! – without waiting for an idea.
  • Finish your game in hours or in a weekend, not over months.
  • Understand every line of code used in the entire program.
  • Avoid distraction from searching for or creating detailed art.
  • Master fundamentals needed to make your own games better.

You can program this game with a normal text editor, and run it in the web browser you already have. No special software is needed.

Though you'll be coding in JavaScript for HTML5 canvas in this course, the focus is on common game programming concepts. You can later apply these same patterns to get quick results in other programming languages such as C#, Java, ActionScript 3, C++, or Python.

I'm a private game development trainer, and for clients new to gameplay programming this is exactly the material that I cover to get them started quickly. Within hours you will have finished programming your first project. This is the fastest way to get results. The momentum gained from doing this provides a solid foundation to give more advanced concepts meaning and context as you continue on in your journey of learning game development.

Why Learn Game Development with Unity?

The gaming industry is a $100 billion industry worldwide. By 2020, that number is expected to near $120 billion. With Unity being the most widely used engine to develop games across multiple platforms, there has never been a better time to get into the field. As you will learn, the types of games you can create with Unity and C# are limitless. Game development makes a great hobby, allowing you to learn a new skill and play your game with family and friends. It is also an exciting and rewarding career, where plenty of successful developers, including myself, have learned the fundamentals of game development through courses like this, and not in the traditional classroom setting. Every great game starts somewhere, so why not make it yours? While people often find coding or making games intimidating, this Unity course utilizes a unique teaching method which will allow you to gain a thorough understanding of concepts while you develop your own games. Thanks to the Unity community, you’ll be able to connect with other developers, work together on new projects, and make some incredible games!

Why Learn From Me

This is the first and only Unity game development course that has been co-created with Unity Technologies on Udemy.  Because learning to code can be daunting, Unity Technologies wanted to create a course that helps new developers feel comfortable exploring the engine and developing games. I believe that the best way to learn how to code is by doing. Therefore, this is a highly interactive series that does not spoon-feed you the answers. The unique challenges integrated throughout this Unity course will ensure you not only know how to code something, but you also understand the logic behind it. As a self-taught software engineer, I found that there simply weren’t any high-quality video tutorials that allowed beginners to truly grasp concepts essential to game development. To remedy this, I created my own YouTube video series focused on Unity game development, where I’ve had the privilege of helping thousands of other people grow their passion for game development.  

I’ve been working in Unity since the initial public release of version 2.6, and I’ve authored a book on Unity 3.X. Since beginning my career in software development, I’ve been fortunate enough to develop games for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and several indie game companies. I’ve also developed enterprise augmented reality applications for Fortune 500 companies like Coca-Cola, GE, and Thyssenkrupp. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, and I hope you will see that throughout this course.  

Upon completing this Unity course, you will understand the basic concepts of C# programming and be able to continue developing your own 2D and 3D games. You will also feel confident knowing that you have mastered the latest and greatest game development techniques that will propel you to success in your professional or personal aspirations.

Join me on this adventure today!  I’ll see you inside the course.

Scratch is the best educational programming software for kids available today. With Scratch, you can create games and interactive art projects all while having lots of fun!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This course was made for Scratch 2.0. On January 1st, 2019, Scratch 3.0 was released on the Scratch website. However, you can still use the Scratch 2.0 Offline Editor. This course will be completed updated for the new 3.0 version in mid-2019. The information here is still relevant to using Scratch 3.0, though it doesn't cover 3.0's new features.

Designed by the MIT Media Lab’s Lifelong Kindergarten Group for 8 to 16 year olds, Scratch is a free programming environment that runs in your web browser. But Scratch users consist of people of all ages, including younger children with their parents. The software makes it easy for anyone to start developing their programming and problem-solving skills.

I’m Al Sweigart, the author of several programming books for kids and beginners. This course follows the content of my latest book Scratch Programming Playground, which you can read for free online under a Creative Commons license. This is my second Udemy course following my highly-rated "Automate the Boring Stuff with Python Programming".

This course (and supplemental book) covers the creation of several classic games like brick Breaker, Snake, and Fruit Ninja. Instead of memorizing a list of programming concepts, you’re guided through making these games and picking up programming concepts on the way. The lectures follow the 6 game and computer art projects, along with additional content on debugging and experimenting with Scratch.

This course won’t make you a software engineer or app developer, but it can provide kids with fun activities and give parents and K-12 teachers the training they need to help children learn to code. By the end of this course, you’ll have a solid understanding of Scratch and its community of millions of users.

Learn C++ game development is a course I made for everyone who knows how to program, but doesn't know where to start with game development. The course teaches you how to use the SFML library for C++, to start working with graphics, events and sound to create a 2D game. Everything is done step by step with the help of videos, so it's easy to follow along and learn. At the end of the course you will know what you need for game programming and will be able to start making your own games.

Warning: This course was published more than 2 years ago and the technology used in it progresses fast. The current most updated version of SFML (2.1) doesn't work out of the box with Visual Studio 2013 (or the express editions) and it requires more work to setup. If you want to follow this course easily, then you should use the 2012 or older version of Visual Studio (or the express edition) which can still be officially downloaded from Microsoft site.

This course provides a full guide on trading card game battle mechanics.

The material in this course is divided into 6 Sections. Section 1 features a short introduction to the course. 

In Section 2 we will focus on making cards. We will use Unity UI features to create both faces and card backs of our cards. Spell cards and creature cards will be designed a bit differently. Creature cards will have distinctive oval frames around creature images. You will learn how to rotate cards that are made with Unity UI properly. We will do some scripting to make a simple system that will allow us to create and edit our cards as assets in Unity.

In Section 3 we will continue working on different visual elements: mana pools, rope timer, hero portraits, end turn button and so on. By the end of this Section we will assemble a visual layout of our Battle Scene that our players will see in the final version of the game. We will also explore several scripts that will help us drag cards in the game, organize and display enlarged previews of cards and creatures.

In Section 4 we will prepare our project for bringing in all the scripts that will handle Logic in our game. We`ll start by taking a look at a small slideshow that will explain the relationship between Visual and Logical parts of our game. We`ll add several new Visual features – Damage Effects that will display amounts of damage taken by creatures or heroes in the game, a simple system that will show messages in the start of each turn and targeted dragging for spell cards and creature attacks.

Section 5 is the most complicated Section of this course in terms of scripting. We`ll bring all the remaining scripts, including all the Logic scripts into our project. Our goal for this Section is to establish the most basic game mechanics of drawing cards from deck, playing creatures onto the battlefield and attacking either our opponent`s hero or his creatures. We will also discuss turn management and test our burning rope timer.

In the final section of this course you will learn to create spell and creature effects for your game. Creature effects might be caused when the creature enters the battlefield, when the creature dies, when the turn starts or ends or even when certain events occur in the game (like: when your Hero takes damage, draws a card, etc…). We will also take a look at a simple AI script that will control our opponent`s behavior and let us play this game against the computer.

I have tried to save the project that I was working in as often as I can so that you can easily pick up the material from any point in this course. All these assets that are used to create cards, creatures, hero powers and other game elements are free for commercial use and available for download with this course. You can find detailed info on art and scripting assets and links to some other useful resources in the Credits file that you can download with this course.

From explosion blasts to motorcycle crashes, games are riddled with physical reactions. Find out how to trigger these events, and how to take your character movement beyond walk cycles.

For some visuals, take this random youtube video of GTA V motorcycle crashes. How do you know when a character is supposed to react? And if you do know, how can you make it look realistic? You can’t resort to some crouching position set up by an animator, there’s a de facto infinite amounts of ways on how a character can get impacted. Or this MK clip. Uppercutted someone and then set up a combo to slam them back to the ground? Can’t do it without dynamics.

If you want to create games that people really love, you need to know game dynamics. In this course you will learn game dynamics from a professional game developer using the free and popular Unity 3D game development platform.

What Is Game Dynamics?

Game Dynamics (sometimes confused with Game Mechanics) has been difficult for the game development world to describe using words. The best definition consists of three parts in order to understand the whole idea of Game Dynamics:

  • Mechanics are the formal rules of the game. The agents, objects, elements and their relationships in the game. They define the game as a rule-based system, specifying what there is, how everything behaves, and how the player can interact with the gameworld.
  • Dynamics are the emergent behavior that arises from gameplay, when the Mechanics are put into use.
  • Aesthetics are the emotional response from the players to the gameplay.

More About the Course

This course aims to give you a solid overview of how Game Dynamics can be integrated into any game you're creating, as well as how to use Unity 3D tools such as the Mecanim Animation System to achieve a dynamic game environment.

With the release of Unity 5 building games was never easier!!!

This is a course I wish I had when I first started to learn game development.

The course is completely project based, and we are going to create 6 fully featured games from scratch using Unity Game Engine.

We will start with simple things so you will be comfortable if you are using Unity for the first time.

You will also benefit from my super fast response if you have any issue that you are stuck with(I check Udemy forums every day if someone posts a question). Oh and all the students taking the course will also be there to help you!

All project files will be included and you are free to use them for anything that you like, personal or commercial use!

Lets take a look at the games that we are going to create inside of this course:

We are going to start with a simple game that I call Jack The Giant. In this game we are going to help Jack climb down the beanstalk, along the way we can jump on white clouds but we need to avoid dark clouds. Besides of creating our gameplay we are going to create menus, implement background music, implement admob ads and much much more.

The next game that we are going to create is Flappy Bird, and I know what you are thinking oh not another Flappy Bird clone, but this is not a regular Flappy Bird clone, oh no, I've added a lot of features that you can't find in any other flappy bird clone such as selecting a bird(choose between different flappy birds), implementing tweeter and many other features that you will see inside of the course.

After Flappy Bird we are going to create one of the most popular games out there - Infinite Runner!! In this game we are going to see how can we implement features such as quads to represent our backgrounds, spawning obstacles and destroying them, recycling obstacles, implementing google play game services and much much more.

Next game that we are going to create is going to be a 2D Plaformer game that I call Spider Cave. In this game our player is able to fly and he needs to collect diamonds in order to exit out of the level, what he needs to avoid though are the spiders that lure inside the cave. We are going to have a spider shooter who shoots our player, spider jumper who tries to eat our player when the player is above him and spider walker who simply walks left and right. For the first time we are going to implement simple AI(Artificial Intelligence) in our games, and you can use these techniques in your own games that you will create!

After our spider cave we are going to create a nice puzzle game, which a kids game. In this game we are going to implement a lot of features such as creating the whole game in one single scene!! We are going to see how can we compare images to each other in order to check if we have a correct guess, we are going to use the mechanim system a lot in this game in order to animate our menus, that and much more awaits you in this lecture.

The final game that we are going to create is a game that is called Ball Panic. This is the largest game that we are going to create in this course and the game covers a lot of topics everybody is interested in, such as creating a level and character lock/unlock system, creating weapons menu in order to select a weapon for our player, creating level menu and unlocking those levels, implementing video and interstitial ads and in app purchase, that and much more awaits you in this lecture.
