Everyone has an idea for a video game. Everyone. You're probably thinking about a puzzle-based platformer starring an anthropomorphic cat. Your neighbor dreams about tactical RPG in which Vikings slay and flirt with one another. Your mom secretly wants to play a first-person lucha libre simulator. And all of these games would be a reality, if only you knew how to make them.
Well, soon you will.
Unity is a well-known video game development tool that lets you make all different kinds of 2D and 3D games. It also makes it super easy to port them to Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, iOS, or 23 other platforms. Whether you're a professional video game developer or an aspiring designer with a serious case of Nintendo thumb, learning Unity is a smart idea. Here are five different 30-minute Unity crash courses that will help you take your skills to the next level.
Unity Crash Course: Co-Ordinates And Vector 2s
Bob Ross might be all about blurring lines, but game designers are all about vectors. This course will teach you about all those funky angles, and how to work with the Unity positioning system.
Unity Crash Course: Physics
Physics aren't just for pool sharks and Neil DeGrasse Tyson. It's also for video game engines. This course will teach you how to create game physics and test them out with a cube that you'll get to launch into a wall. You wouldn't believe how often this comes in handy.
Unity Crash Course: First-Person Controls
The only thing better than shooting fish in a barrel is a first-person shooter wherein you can shoot virtual fish in a virtual barrel with a rocket launcher. This course will teach you how to design controls for a first-person shooter, so you can recreate the ultimate battlefield experience akin to what you see in Call Of Duty or Halo or your mom's aforementioned lucha libre title EL SANTO FOREVER 2k19.
Unity Crash Course: Key Input
Have you ever noticed that when you press the A button, something happens? That's not magic. It's due to a little feature called Key Input. This course will teach you how to become a world class Key Input-er so that video game players can do everyday things like jump over bottomless pits.
Unity Crash Course
Unity saves you from writing a lot of unnecessary code. Yes, you'll still have to write some code, but with Unity, you won't have to spend the rest of your days in a dark room typing endlessly. This course will refresh you on C# so you can code up a storm and also have a life.
You can get each of these courses for $9.99, or you can get the entire 30-Minute Unity Bootcamp Bundle for just $19.99, a savings of 95 percent.
