Learn to create your first 3D game with Unity

THIS COURSE IS IN DEVELOPMENT

This course offers an introduction to Unity and steps students through the creation of their first 3D game with no prior programming experience needed. Students will use provided assets to assemble a playable 3D environment that can be explored and interacted with. This course focuses on many of Unity’s major systems and just enough coding to apply gameplay logic to tie things together. Each student will leave the course with a unique first-person, third-person, or VR game; and a foundation of skills they can develop to make their next game.
