    Intro to Game Development was an excellent course. The lecturer, does an excellent job of keeping things organized - at the start and end of every video he explains what you will be doing (or have done). He also thoroughly explains the use of best practices...

    Fun and instructive course. You actually get your hands dirty creating a couple of simple games with the ultra-powerful Unity3D game engine (which is free!!)

    There is some ok content here - my biggest issue with it is that the audio is distorted in all of the videos, this makes it very distracting especially when each session is over 2 hours long (far too long in my opinion).
