The global gaming market could be worth over $159 billion by the end of this year, bigger than the movie and music industries combined. And unlike the devastating financial hits suffered by both film and music companies during the COVID-19 pandemic, video games use is only getting bigger during social distancing and quarantine rules. Game sales reached over $977 million in May, a more than 50 percent rise over 2019.
Gaming could well be the dominant media of the future — so for those interested in taking a proactive step toward joining the industry or just creating something really cool, the training in The Build a Strategy Game Development Bundle can jump start that charge. Regularly $1,990, it’s available now for only $39.99.
The package collects 10 courses that can help even first-time game creators understand what it takes to create their own gaming world and get familiar with the most popular tools for crafting those games used by today’s top developers.
Packed with 12 gaming projects to challenge learners at each stage of their development, this collection lays down the basics of building your own game, no matter whether it’s turn-based, requires real-time strategy moves, or even hinges on multiplayer gaming.
The training begins with a full introduction to using Unity, one of the most powerful game creation engines in the world. Once students acclimate to the Unity environment, the instruction centers around those projects, offering real hands-on experience that not only embeds the training, but makes that training well, including important lessons for their own game building adventures.
Users amass skills while actually crafting games, exploring the mechanics of building a strategy game by guiding students through making their own 3D, turn-based game centered on creating and leading a Mars colony.
Training advances to encompass even trickier game development tasks, showing users how to move 3D models around the game world at will, how 3D model trees can control unit spawning, and action-based methods for creating game opponents that truly react to the gameplay through artificial intelligence tactics.
Finally, the courses lead students to their biggest challenge yet as they’re tasked with building a multiplayer strategy game that partially springs from the popular framework tool Photon.
Each step in this 10-course package retails for $199, but with this offer, the whole package is on sale for less than $4 per course, only $39.99.
