What you'll learn
Create core combat mechanics for melee, ranged and special attacks.
More advanced C# techniques such as interfaces, delegates, and co-routines.
Create pathfinding systems and patrol paths for enemies and NPCs.
Make a detailed level with terrain, enemies, triggers, lighting, particles and props.
Balance the player and enemy stats (eg. health, damage, movement, attack speed, and more).
Advanced game design, project management and code architecture strategies.
You should be able to write basic C# (loops, conditionals, components, etc)
Some familiarity with Unity's APIs is helpful.
You should know your way round Unity 5's editor.
Role Playing Games can be complex to create, with many interacting gameplay systems. We make it easy for you! Learn, step-by-step, how to make the foundations of any good RPG combat system - from scratch.
In this course we're focusing on the core of any great RPG, giving your players a fun combat moment in a well crafted level, based upon a solid game design, built using a robust code architecture. You will follow our project, but also make the game entirely your own.
This highly acclaimed course was over 200% funded on Kickstarter, and is designed for intermediate users of Unity. We recommend you take at least the first half of our Complete Unity Developer 2D or 3D, or equivalent, as a pre-requisite.
The course can be a standalone course, or can be taken as the first part in our RPG series. The three other separate courses in this series teach the Inventory system, Shops and Abilities, and Dialogue and Quests.
This is a highly realistic and comprehensive introduction to real game development. We'll be taking you through our process step-by-step, with all decisions justified and all avenues explored.
Fancy something a little different to get started? Check out GameDev's other courses, just look for the green logo as your guide.
We will be dealing with player movement, NavMesh navigation, AI pathfinding, save and loading systems, basic pick ups, using asset packs, debug code, making particle effects and more. We'll also give you a robust code architecture for managing more complex projects by setting up namespaces.
You'll need a basic grasp of Unity and C# before you get start, from there we'll be teaching you more advanced programming techniques such as C# delegates, interfaces, co-routines and more.

About the instructor
Hi, I’m Ben. I have a degree in computing from Imperial College London, and a physics diploma from the Open University.
I started working for myself at the age of 15, and never looked back. I explored careers as varied as being a commercial pilot, stunt-man, rock climbing instructor, and more. None of these provided a continued challenge, and stable income in the same way technology does.
After building and selling a home computer support business, I became an angel investor and business mentor here in Cambridge UK. I fell in love with teaching game development through one of my investments, and I now spend all of my time sharing my passion with people like you.
I can’t wait to help you experience the fulfilment, and financial freedom, that having a deep understanding of technology brings.
So why not start learning to make games with me and my team now?
See you soon!
