Many people have a perception that to successful mobile game development requires learning complicated and difficult skills and techniques. By learning the process with Unity 3D, these perceptions will be smashed. Not only is Unity 3D easy to get to grips with, it's extremely versatile too; so you can develop and publish games on almost any platform, for almost any device.
Create Mobile Games for Any Platform
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.
By the end of this course, you will have created a complex Unity 3D game – having started with nothing but a blank screen – that can be instantly published and played on multiple platforms.
