Designed for success

Learn the fundamental skills you need

Creating a game can be daunting. That's why we partnered with Pluralsight to produce a complete course that teaches you the core skills you need to build a Unity game. You'll get hands-on experience producing scripts, animating objects and adding lighting. And since many developers depend on imported third-party assets, we show you how to work with digital content creation tools like Maya and Photoshop, and provide you with amazing art to add great visual touches to your own game.
