This course started as a runaway success on Kickstarter and has gone on to become the most popular and most watched Unity game development course on Udemy. The course has full English closed-captions throughout.
Learn how to create video games using Unity, the world-leading free-to-use game development tool. We start super simple so you need no prior experience of Unity or coding! With our online tutorials, you'll be amazed what you can achieve right from the first moment you start the course.
Benefit from our world-class support from both other students, and the GameDevtv team who are regularly engaged in the forums and Q&A section. Go on to build several games including:
Laser Defender: A Top-Down Space Shooter with enemies to shoot and dodge;
Glitch Garden: A Tower Defense game with different tower types and enemy types, and a basic resources system;
TileVania: A fast-paced classic Side-Scrolling Platformer using Unity's Tilemap tool;
Block Breaker: A basic "Breakout" style game which introduces Unity's built in physics engine.
Prefer to start with 3D games? Check-out our sister course, the Complete C# Unity Developer 3D. Already have some Unity knowledge, and want something more challenging? Check-out our epic RPG Core Combat Creator. More interested in creating 3D models from scratch? Start with our Complete Blender Creator course. Our green leaf logo is a symbol of passion and quality.
You will have access to a course forum where you can discuss topics on a course-wide basis, or down to the individual video. Our thriving discussion forum will help you learn and share ideas with other students. Check out our reviews to see how people love this feature.
The course is project-based as we believe this is the best way to learn Unity and C#. You will not just be learning dry programming concepts, but applying them immediately to real indie games as you go. All the project files will be included, as well as additional references and resources - you'll never get stuck. There are talking-head videos, powerful diagrams, quality screencasts and more.
Oh, and it's just bigger and better than other Unity courses you will find online. See the course length and the reviews.
For each demo game you build you will follow this process...
Be challenged to build the entire game yourself.
Be shown step-by step how to build it.
Be challenged to apply, and re-apply your knowledge regularly.
You will get full lifetime access for a single one-off fee. The creators are qualified and experienced coders and avid gamers, so are able to explain complex concepts clearly, as well as entertain along the way.
You will learn C#, and in turn build a solid foundation for Object Oriented Programming. By the end of the course you'll be very confident in the basics of coding and game development, and hungry to learn more.
What this course DOESN'T cover...
Whereas this course is already huge, we can't possibly cover everything in that time. Here are some things we will not be covering...
Editor plugins or modifications.
Physics engine modification*
* Separate mini-course to cover these this now available.

Hi, I'm Ben. I have a degree in computing from Imperial College London, and a physics diploma from the Open University. I started working for myself at the age of 15, and never looked back. I explored careers as varied as being a commercial pilot, stunt-man, rock climbing instructor, and more. None of these provided a continued challenge, and stable income in the same way technology does. After building and selling a home computer support business, I became an angel investor and business mentor here in Cambridge UK. I fell in love with teaching game development through one of my investments, and I now spend all of my time sharing my passion with people like you. I can't wait to help you experience the fulfilment, and financial freedom, that having a deep understanding of technology brings.
