TLDR: The Unity Game Developer Bundle serves up 10 courses for building awesome video games…plus you can a year of PlayStation Plus for inspiration.
Sometimes, we all need a little push. If you’re a video game fan, you’ve probably always considered learning some of the skills needed to create cool games of your own. Of course, when it actually came time to really dig in to do the work and get that training…well heck, it’s time for another game, right?
We get it. Playing games is usually more fun than working to create them. But if you need a little carrot-and-stick incentive to buckle down and learn, then The Unity Game Developer Bundle ft. a one year subscription to PlayStation Plus ($69.99, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals) might just finally do the trick.
Of course, the attention-grabber here is 12 months of access to the PlayStation Plus service, the online hub for any and all PlayStation fans to get the most out of their games. In addition to exclusive discounts and offers, free cloud storage, and at least two free game downloads a month just for being a member, PlayStation Plus is where all of the PlayStation multiplayer gaming happens.
With memberships, gamers can head in and take on or team-up with more than 47 million other PlayStation fans at all the biggest and hottest new games, including one of June’s free games, the space dogfight triumph Star Wars: Squadrons.
But…you can’t have dessert before you’ve had the meal. This collection also features 10 courses with nearly 100 hours of training in the real art of gaming, using the industry-leading Unity game engine to create fan games of your own while you learn the building blocks of the game development trade.
Whether it’s creating a first person shooter game or a third-person action adventure saga, this coursework charts the way. This training helps explain the basics of crafting animations, game environment, attack mechanics, and more, even the role that using AI can play in creating smarter, more unpredictable game opponents for your players.
Along the way, most of the valuable lessons are reinforced by actually creating a game around that lesson, including everything from a starship or tank battle game to a ninja survival game, to even a multiplayer game with an open warfare Battle Royale-style format to push players to their limits.
And somehow…you’re learning something new the whole way.
All of the training (not to mention the gameplay) in The Unity Game Developer Bundle ft. PlayStation Plus would normally cost more than $2,000, but right now, it’s all part of this package now for just $69.99, a savings of over 90 percent off.
