Important: all software used are FREE to download and use on PC and MAC computers (no need to pay cheers!)
In this course you will learn how to design and program a 3D pixel art video game just like Crossy Road using Unity3D and publish it in the app stores (iOS and Android).
Why would you want to learn how to make a game like crossy road? Because it's the most efficient way to create a good looking game by yourself that you can publish in the app store without having the need of a team of multiple people.
This course can be taken by anyone even if you've got no programming skills or very little
This course is meant for non-artists meaning you don't have to be an artist to be able to use 3D pixel art graphics.
You will learn how to use free tools to make an amazing game from scratch as I will show you every single line of programming and how to use Unity 3D to be able to make professional games all by yourself quickly and without having to spend money.
You will learn how to download and install unity 3D on Mac PC or Linux.
Then we will get to create a project add levels and add graphichs such as the Crossy Road chickens Roads trees rocks cars trucks and much more.
You will also learn how to add artificial intelligence to these objects to make them come to life.
Also you will learn how to make game menus game over screens and how to keep score.
Once we've got a working game we will go through the whole process to publish the game to the iTunes app store.
Then you will learn how to add all these objects in the game engine called Unity 3d to make amazing 3d games just like crossy road.
Now this course is meant to make things this super easy for you. All the steps are shown to you in the video lectures so you cant possibly miss a step.
And by the way as a bonus this course includes free downloads of the finished 3D models Unity projects and levels as well.
The skills you will learn in this course can be applied to so many more projects as they are the core foundations of any professional video games. Invest in yourself by joining this course now
What is 3D Pixel Art?
3D Pixel art is a form of digital art created through the use of 2D-like raster graphics software where images are edited on the pixel level in the form of blocks. Graphics in most old (or relatively limited) computer console graphing calculator and mobile phone video games are mostly 2D pixel art and now we use the new technologies t have the retro-cool style with the amazing functionality that 3d technology provides.
Important: This course is part of a the world's one and one series on Unity professional multiplayer games.
The content is so big it couldn't fit in one course. Here is the courses are split in key areas:
There are so many tutorials guides and courses out there that it's hard to know how to start learning how to code game development and even harder to know in which order you should take the courses.
We've decided to focus on Unity rather than other platforms because the team behind Unity has a great vision. They are always on top of things. Each time a new device comes out they add support for it and also create special libraries for it. We believe you should focus on Unity as well. We want to make sure you do by providing you the best learning material at the best prices
For example Oculus Rift and Samsung VR are fully operational on Unity 5.
Unity also entered the live cinematic world (animated movies think Toy Story). The future is bright for Unity developers. (more about the future of Unity )
There's also been a change in the mobile app app store category ranking system which makes it harder to get app exposure for new apps. It means developers need to focus on a few apps instead of bombarding the app store with reskins. Nowadays an app is a continuous work of art where developers need to listen to the users and keep updating the app to give them exactly what they want.
Having said that you will maximize your learning experience if you takes the courses in the following order:
- Understand the process of making games:
Before even getting started into developing you need to understand the whole process of making games from A to Z. Take the Captain Rocket course where you get to see how a Unity project gets reused and turned into another game and gets published to iTunes app store.
course: Publish Captain Rocket* iPhone game under 2 hours Unity 5
- Learn the basics:
The course Begin Unity Programming is short (about 45 minutes) and entertaining where you will learn keys Unity concepts and code using Star Wars figurines.
Another important course is Fundamentals of Programming. Beware! This course goes over the hard stuff of programming. It's explaining the mechanics used in programming just like you would get in a computer science class in the American Ivy league Universities. It's not for everyone but it should be taken by EVERYONE. You need to understand what are for / while loops what's the difference between an int a float or a double and what are the principles of object oriented programming (to name a few key concept). The course comes with plenty of mind-stimulating exercises made with the new elegant language named Swift.
- Get comfortable with using Unity's user interface: course Introduction to Game Development with Unity
Unity Editor can be overwhelming at first with all its windows sub windows and tabs. Luckily this course guides you through it. Oh i forgot to mention it's free!
- Learn how to create graphics to use in your game: 3D Pixel Art for non artist. Crossy Road Modeling. Unity 3D
Graphic assets can be 2D illustrations 3D graphics sprites voxel art (MineCraft like) or also sound effects and Unity bundles.
I recommend to start making graphic assets following the course 3D Pixel Art for non artist. Crossy Road Modeling. Unity 3D. Why? Because it's a course that allows anyone to make decent game graphics without having to be an artist! With the correct tools and the right guidance you will end up making 3d pixel graphics (voxel) art just like Crossy road or MineCraft by the end of the day.
Once you know how to create 3D assets it's time you learn how to make 3D characters animate them and import them into Unity to use them!
You will learn all of the above in the course named 3D Pixel Characters Modeling & Animations for all. Unity 3D.
By the way the tools used in the course are all free to use that's the cherry on the cake!
By the end of the course you will be able to create and animate characters like Spiderman Ironman and wonder woman. Make Ironman dance hip-hop is hilarious and gratifying!
