Complex, challenging and ambitious — you think playing video games is hard? Try making one. Creating video games requires many different skills: graphic design, animation, music/audio design, programming, writing, storytelling and game design.

In the old days, it would be very difficult for any individual to create a playable video game. But with today’s powerful computers and all the tools available out there, you can grab a couple friends to create a totally original game, and even make it big. Not saying it would be easy, but with skills, practice and persistence, your team can be “The Beatles” of video game makers.

In this course, you will learn the fundamental of video game design and development, and how to use Unity by working on projects that require creative insight and technical skills.
