Course Description

The Game Development 101 course will introduce you to the skills you'll need to bring your game ideas to life. We take you through the 3 key stages of games development:

  1. Character Design
  2. Animation
  3. Programming

You will be creating a simple 2D prototype for a hack-and-slash side scrolling games.

Stage #1: We start by introducing traditional drawing practices & character design basics - utilising Adobe Photoshop. This will lead you into creating your own fully-realised character design.

Stage #2: We cover Disney Animation Studios “12 Principles of Animation” before animating the character we've just made in stage #1. This will solidify your knowledge of the animation processes: “Straight Ahead” and “Pose to Pose”.

Stage #3: Utilising any work you've made in the earlier stages, you'll be placing these into the free 'Unity' games engine, bulding your own prototype hack-and-slash scrolling computer game with some simple functionality.

BONUS : We've added a wide selection of Adobe PhotoShop & Graphic Design courses!
