TLDR: The Unreal and Unity Game Development for Beginners Bundle offers six courses full of insight on creating with both of the video game industry’s biggest game engine platforms.
For those who game, it’s likely your favorite creations came from work in one of two creation environments. Just like Coke and Pepsi, game design is dominated by a pair of game engine titles, Unity and Unreal. From Unity heavyweights like Fortnite to Unreal superstars like Pokemon Go, these two game incubators have helped generate most of today’s most popular game, while controlling over 60 percent of the video game creation market.
The bottom line is that for those who want to learn how to make video games, you cover lots and lots of bases by understanding both of these industry leading engines. The Unreal and Unity Game Development for Beginners Bundle ($30, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals) is just that solid introduction, novice-level training in both of the dominant game creation environments to help build your own games or get hired as a developer in the video game field.
The collection features six courses including a trio of courses each in understanding and getting the most out of each of these two dynamic game engines.
Pick your poison…and jump in. If you’d like to start with the ultra-cool Unreal training, it starts here with the Unreal Engine Game Development for Beginners course. Unreal games are known for their rich, opulent gameplay, so this training gets first time users up to speed on the basics. Newcomers will learn how to download the Unreal engine and get started, learning the interface, maneuvering elements for rotating and scaling, creating blueprints to visually script mechanics, and more.
With all those building blocks in place, students put all those pieces together in a pair of epic builds, first creating an action role playing game, then a first person shooter game complete with animated enemies, all from scratch.
But as big as Ureal is, Unity is even bigger — so the Unity By Example: 20+ Mini Projects in Unity can help newbie creators grasp the ins and outs of this ubiquitous creation tool. Once students have picked up the skills and learned the ways of creating their own games with Unity and the C# programming language, further courses move beyond to craft another 20 mini projects, then a collection of 7 Android compatible games to test out all of their skill.
Each course in The Unreal and Unity Game Development for Beginners Bundle is a $200 value, but with this current offer, all six are packaged up here for about $5 each, just $30.
