Create an RPG game in Unity

Create an RPG Game in Unity

My latest course is now available on Udemy. For the next 30 days it is available at just $12.99

https://www.udemy.com/course/create-an-rpg-game-in-unity/?couponCode=RPGGAMEOFFER2022

In this course I am going to take you through the process step by step:

Setting up the terrain and level layout

creating menus and inventory systems

setting up an onscreen mini map

creating a shop system to buy ingredients for potions or weapons and armour

setting up a dynamic inventory menu where you can mix potions to create unique magic attacks

spawning in enemies and boss characters with combat systems and navigation pathfinding

setting up player magic attacks and melee combat

saving and loading player progress

This is a huge course covering more than 40 hours and is intended for learners who have a basic familiarity with Unity and C# coding

By the end of this course you will learn key concepts in advanced game design and upgrade your knowledge of C# coding to an intermediate level

You will also have a completed RPG fantasy game which you can include in your portfolio, share with friends or even sell online

I have over 9 years experience of teaching Unity and like all my courses I make learning game design fun and easy, this is why my courses are highly recommended by my learners in the reviews.

So, why not enrol today and I look forward to seeing you in my course.

Unreal Engine 5 for Film Making

Unreal Engine is already being used for virtual sets, famously on productions such as the Mandalorian, but also increasingly on many others.

The truly game changing aspect of Unreal Engine, and the thing that now makes it much more of a threat to traditional filmmaking, is that its graphics are rendered in realtime.

Want to set your film in Morocco when you live in New Zealand? No problem. Want to stage a huge space battle with lots of frickin’ lasers? You got it!

Free Computer Science Crash Course

In this amazing series on Youtube you will find out all about the history of computers and the ways in which both old and new computers work. There are 41 videos in the series. Hope you enjoy it.

Think of it as a summary of a computer science course at college or University. Once you have a depper understanding of how computers work it will help you in designing games and programs to run on the hardware.

The official course description from Youtube:

“Carrie Anne Philbin will be hosting Crash Course Computer Science! In this series, we’re going to trace the origins of our modern computers, take a closer look at the ideas that gave us our current hardware and software, discuss how and why our smart devices just keep getting smarter, and even look towards the future! Computers fill a crucial role in the function of our society, and it’s our hope that over the course of this series you will gain a better understanding of how far computers have taken us and how far they may carry us into the future.”

History of Gran Turismo

At the moment I am creating a driving based game tutorial in Unity.

I thought it would be good to share the history and evolution of one of the most sophisticated driving simulator games – Gran Turismo

Starting out on Playstation 1, this game is constantly pushing the boundaries of what you can achieve in driving sims on console and PC.

My driving course will be ready within the next month, so stay tuned for that.

Unreal Engine 5 is now available!

This Early Access build of Unreal Engine 5 is not production-ready, but this is where, for the first time, you can get your hands on Unreal 5 to try out the new features such as Nanite and Lumen

You will need a powerful PC to run it, as these systems are designed for next gen systems such as PS5.

There is also a demo project to download which showcases the new features. But be aware it is almost 100GB in size!

Check out reviews by other Youtubers:

Have fun trying out the much anticipated update to Unreal

Evil Dead – the Game! Out in 2021

This looks awesome. I am a huge fan of the evil dead franchise and this by far looks like a faithful adaptation of not only the movies but also the smash hit TV series Ash Vs Evil Dead.

Great to see so many recognizable characters from all the movies and TV shows. The staple over the top gore is faithfully recreated in the game which in my opinion is going to make this an instant success.
