If you’re trying to get into game design and development, the learning curve could be steep. With so much software and skills to master, trying to learn it all on your own could be a difficult undertaking. If you want some guidance as you set out for a career in game development, then give The Game Design & Development Bundle a try, now on sale for $203, down from $1519. This seven-course package contains instruction on Unity, Maya, and other common tools in the industry.
These courses could make early game design skills accessible for people new to the industry, starting with a 216-hour primer, Game Design for Beginners, taught by professionals from One Education. This course could help you get up to speed on the basics, including learning about game types, loops, and arcs along with game layers and where to find free assets. It goes so far as to teach you a bit about the publishing process and crowdfunding along with the top 10 mistakes people often make while developing a game.
After the primer, you can move on to more specialized instruction. Learn to use one of the most popular game engines in the industry in Introduction to Unity Game Development. Then expand on that knowledge with Maya & Unity 3D: Modeling Environments for Mobile Games.
Those aren’t the only tools you’ll be using. You also get the chance to practice with Gamemaker Studio 2. While this software isn’t included in the bundle (nor is Unity or other game dev software), this is still a comprehensive look at how to use a potentially exciting tool.
