Introduction to video game development with Unity

Universitat Politècnica de València via edX

Overview

Never before has the video game market been at a better time. There are currently many platforms available and the emergence of mobile devices has revolutionized the sector.

The existence of multiple platforms implies great challenges for developers in decision making, both in the choice of platforms and in the sizing of work teams.

One solution to these problems is to use a game engine, and without a doubt the most popular and used engine of the moment is Unity.

Unity is the most popular engine for reasons such as its powerful tools, its ability to generate games on more than 20 different platforms, its excellent learning curve and the hundreds of add-ons available to it developed by third parties.

    The example that you will do in this course really teaches you well about Unity and gives enough knowledge to explore on your own afterwards. You have to turn the speed of the videos to 1.25x so it is at real speed, otherwise the video and audio is unnaturally...

    As a complete beginner on Unity, I was quite worried about my understanding of this course. But Mr Linares is a wonderful teacher. He is really clear and takes his time to repeat several times each step in each lesson, helping us better handle the complex...

    This course starts with basic elements and explains it well but then goes deeper very fast and start showing memorized things, it is hard to understand why codes work like that or why some codes and scripts needed to added different objects in different...

    You have to turn the speed of the videos to 1.25x so it is at real speed, otherwise the video and audio is unnaturally slow.
    There are no practical execises to be corrected. There are test autocorrected which is enough if you are a self-lerner type.
    There are two types of video lessons:
    -Theoretical lessons where the professor is reading the same slide that your are watching. It feels really slow because you can read at the same time

    It was great for a free course ,How ever I think really it has more room for improvement if there was more information about scripting and the 3d physics ,I wish there was a map design tools and ect. Over all it covered the basics and I think I'll miss the teacher on this course. thanks for the effort that has been through these course.

    The course helped me to learn the basics of Unity with the essential background on how and why things work the way they do in Unity, and how a small change can influence the game. More than one way was taught to execute a process and the pros and cons of each processes were discussed too. I am happy with what I have learned so far through this course and I definitely recommend this course for beginners!

    Very interesting and satisfying. The way he teach it simple that is easy to understand, which makes it easy to get a basic understanding, which is very necessary when we learn new disciplines, especially for me whose educational background is not engineering. I hope the follow-up course will be launched soon so that I can produce high-class video games. Thank you very much Mr. Jordi.

    Great course.

    Doing each item step-by-step with explanations of not just the "what" but also the "why" was excellent.

    The minor issue I had was with the sound file not being available to download, plus some of the instructor's word pronunciations were "interesting". :)

    The course has been very interesting and insightful, as it provided a good general and a basic understanding of the main elements of Unity. I hope an intermediate course is added to go deeper into the knowledge. Also, I would love participating in a beginner course of coding for C from the same university and professor. Thank you!

    Was very helpful, unlike other more disjointed classes you find on Unity basics, there is a step-by-step run-through of the different components for holistic learning. Would highly recommend to beginners at Unity who want to understand basic utilities of the game engine.

    As an introductory course it is very helpful in understanding fundamentals in unity programming without being overwhelmed.
    It helps a lot if you have a basic understanding of OOP and really opens up a new horizon to take on!
    Thank you very much for a wonderful teaching!

    This course was good, and kept me entertained while learning. It was overall simple and was easy to understand, and taught me a lot of things of unity. I took a week or so to complete, and I was impressed of the course

    Nice, easy, but (and this is important :) ) - complete introduction to Unity.
    For the presentations, on them just put necessary key words, not the text which will be read. Everything else is excellent.
