In this course, you learn how to build a 3D game with Unity® and Blender. This course is unique because we make both the code and the art for the game from scratch. We teach you the fundamentals of designing, coding, and modeling a 3D game.

  • Video: 29 hours
  • Skill level: Beginner Level

First you design the game "The Legend of Zenda" and its functionality in Unity. You learn how to code in C# and build video game levels. Don't worry if you've never coded before. We start simple and add more to the game as the course goes on.


Why Unity®?

Unity® is one of the most popular platforms in game development. You can use Unity® to build 2D and 3D games. Unity® is cross-platform, which means it is easy to use with other platforms.

Then you create 3D models for the game in Blender. You build all the art assets for the game, including the characters, weapons, cannon, dungeon, and temple. You learn how to integrate your art from Blender into Unity®.


Why Blender?

Blender, like Unity, is a popular production suite that is free to download. Blender is a revolutionary tool for making 3D art digitally. With Blender, you can make art assets for games, like we do in this course.


Is this course for me?

Even if you're not an artist, you can make basic art models. You may have heard of Axiom Verge and Stardew Valley. These games are million-dollar successes. But did you know that only one person made each?

Usually it takes a whole team of people to build a game. But creators Thomas Happ and Eric Barone developed and designed their games by themselves. Now they're millionaires. You can do it, too.

This course is targeted towards anyone who wants to learn game development. Our primary target students are complete beginners. But if you already know how to use Unity or Blender, you can still benefit from taking this course.


What programs do I need?

To follow along with these tutorials, you will need the following programs: Blender (for 3D modeling and texturing), Photoshop or a free program like Gimp (for 2D art and some texturing), and Unity® (for game set-up and coding). Unity® and Blender are free to download. Please download and install Unity® and Blender before purchasing this course. This course was recorded on a Mac computer, but you can use Unity® and Blender on a PC.

And in case you ever get stuck, you can ask any questions and leave comments under each lecture.
Do I get course certificates?
Each certificate in this bundle is only awarded after you have completed every lecture of the course. Many of our students post their Mammoth Interactive certifications on LinkedIn. Not only that, but you will have projects to show employers on top of the certification.
Do I have to show up at a particular place or a particular time?

What if I’m not good with technology?
The majority of Mammoth Interactive students are complete beginners. Even if you feel like you know nothing about technology, you won’t feel left out. All technical concepts are described in simple terms while avoiding unnecessary jargon. Each course starts from scratch and builds up your knowledge substantially in steps. Students from age 5 to 70 have successfully completed our courses. And just in case you get stuck, you can always ask any questions under each lecture, which will be promptly answered by one of my team members.
What if I'm an experienced developer?
Stack Overflow's yearly developer survey found that developers over age 50 start to make less than their younger counterparts. Don't become one of the people affected by skill stagnation. Enroll in our school to future-proof your career for life. If you're an experienced developer, you will still benefit from Mammoth Interactive courses. By starting from scratch with each course, you will revisit the fundamentals and undo bad coding habits. You'll also find it easier to pick up new languages, making you able to take more courses and broaden your skillset.
