This course includes 9 hours of content and 34 lectures, and is suited to both experienced and budding game developers. You will create a dynamic Unity 3D game during the course, but the focus is not on completing a game, but mastering the art of game development through problem solving and experimentation.
You will begin by importing models and textures before progressing to level design, lighting and lightmapping. From there, you will compare and learn about GUI systems, specifically NuGUI. This sets the foundation for the next step; multiple cameras, avatar customisation, controlling your player's actions, scripting mecanim animation, and more. You'll finish off by creating particle effects, compiling and publishing your game.
