Start the course by getting to know Juan Diego Vázquez a little better. He talks about his roots, his creative journey, and what keeps his passion for video game design alive. He also shares the influences that helped make him the professional he is today.

See how to download Unity and revisit how to install, configure, and customize the Visual Studio editor. This tool is the key to getting the most out of your characters. Then create a project, import your files, and get to work with all the fundamentals in place.

Now it's time to focus on the characters and their surroundings. Juan Diego teaches you how to download code created by other users for use in your own projects. Now explore the cameras, discover what Scriptables are, and look at how to change scenes.

Continue building on your project adding layers of complexity to make it more engaging for the players. Juan Diego explains what a GameManager is and what it's used for, as well as showing you how to develop a basic dialogue system and how to increase its size and depth to suit your needs.

Finish off your character with some final tweaks and improvements before adding an essential feature to your game: data persistence. End the course with advice on how to export to devices in order to add executable files and publish your game on the iOS and Android app stores.
