This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to create video games for fun or profit.
No knowledge of game development or computer programming is required to start this course.
During the course, you will learn how to use free game development tools for Windows, Linux or Mac OS X, to create video games – starting with a blank screen, and working through to a completed product that can be sold or shared on Flash game portals.
You will be creating Flash games during the course because it’s incredibly fast to build and test the games, but the skills you will learn can be used to develop games for iPhone and iPad (you’ll need a Mac to test or publish to Apple mobile devices), so you will be able to sell your games on the Apple iTunes Store.
When you have completed your first video game, you will then learn how to build the framework for a platform game with an animated player, accurate collision-detection and a horizontal scrolling screen.
All video training materials have been recorded in High-Definition using professional-quality audio equipment for an enjoyable learning experience. (Be sure to select HD in the video player!)
No prior experience is required to take this course.
Learning from the ground up, you will acquire all the skills necessary to Design and Create your very own computer games, which can then be shared with your friends, or even published to commercial markets such as flash portals, the App Store & Google play.
