Create your first video game from scratch in a 2D and 3D environment
With the help of Mariano Rivas -Technical Artist, Programmer and Motion Grapher- you will learn how to design with Unity 5 and program in C # your first 2D / 3D videogame and give life and interactivity to all your projects from scratch.
What's included in this course?
In the first place, you will know the trajectory of Mariano Rivas, his references and influences.
Next, you will learn how to move around the Unity 5 engine interface, the new edition of the best development platform to create 2D / 3D interactive games and experiences with the most complete multiplatform support in the industry. Mariano will explain how to install the program, and basic knowledge about video games such as GameObjects and its components.
Then you will learn basic principles of videogame programming with the C # programming language: variables, functions, control structures, etc. so that your code can make decisions in real time, through exercises and case studies.
At this point, you will review and import into Unity 5 all the materials and files necessary to make your first video game. For this, you will use the graphic resources and sounds of free libraries and you will leave the game ready at the graphic level in order to start programming.
Then you will program all the necessary mechanics from start to finish including a start menu, the help screen, the countdown, the stopwatch, the distance meter, obstacles, power ups and game lives, all the drivers needed to drive a car and a game over menu with reset button.
To finish, you will put sounds and adjust them so that all the elements have their corresponding effect. You will also add start and end background music.
Finally, you will review the final details of the game for publication. You will end up generating an executable file for PC and Mac OSx and web.
