Who Am I?
Hi, my name is Jay and I create game development tutorials for a living. (Yes, I know how terribly lucky I am!)
This course started by accident. I’d been intending to create a course like this for a long time, but kept procrastinating. Then I took a CS109 college class that was focused on Unity and…
…to make a long story short, the professor found out about my game dev training background and asked if I’d like to help create the rest of the content for this new university course.
What Is In This Course?
The tutorial videos walk you through every single step, so even if you’re a newbie, there’s nothing to worry about.
If you’re wanting to make the coolest FPS or MMO then you’re in the wrong place. Yeah, the skills you gain here will translate to that stuff later, but here we’re focusing on 2D game development.
Starting with NO CODING REQUIRED and going on from there!
What Will You Gain?
At the end of this course you’ll be able to put together simple 2D games using Unity.
Yes, even completely from scratch!
You’ll discover the basics of using the Unity IDE, how to handle physics-based objects, mouse and keyboard interaction, simple animations, audio sound effects and music, using the particle system, and more.
The art and sound assets we’ll be using in this course are available free and the course works with the free version of Unity, so you don’t need to buy anything else.
Just sharpen your brain and head into the first lesson of the course!
Glad to have you here!
