Why learn from us?
My brother and I created this course to share our passion for making games and help others bring their unique visions to life!
We've been teaching aspiring game developers how to use Unity, code with the C# programming language, and make game art and animations. Our tutorials have been viewed by thousands and are very popular, every day we get dozens of developers thanking us for helping them out on their own game dev journey!
We've not only made tons of tutorials but we've also created plenty of games using Unity, both 2D, and 3D!
So we know what it's like to create a complete, polished experience from A to Z, and really want to equip you with the right tools and knowledge so you can do the same!
Who this course is for:
- A beginner/intermediate game developer interested in learning how to create a fun, commercial quality 2D action game from A to Z using Unity and C#.
- This course is also for those curious about programming AI using C#.
- Someone wanting to learn how to draw and animate 2D game characters using a 2D application like Ps or Gimp and Unity.
- This course is NOT for complete beginners having never touched Unity or C#. You should have understood the basics of both Unity and C# if you wish to properly follow along and get the most out of this course.
