Description

What will you learn in this Game Development Course

Module 1

In this module, you will learn all about Introduction To Game Creation. When creating a video the first and probably most crucial thing you need to do is come up with a plan. Trying to dive head first without any type of strategy will surely lead to you becoming overwhelmed and eventually failure. You want to make sure you set yourself up for success by having a clear image of the concept of your game and in which ways you will achieve this concept.

Module 2

This module will teach you about Essential Tools. Now that you have completed all of the essential basic tasks of creating a game it is time to start turning your idea into a functioning game. This step can be made much easier with the use of certain tools. By tools, I, of course, do not mean a hammer or a screwdriver. I am talking about tools that can improve your overall workflow as well as the performance of the game.

Module 3

This module will teach you about 2D Game Creation Software. There are many different types of software that can be used to create two-dimensional games. These programs range in price depending on what you want. Unfortunately, the higher end programs that professional programmers use for mainstream games are very expensive, around $100,000! If you are like most people this is completely unrealistic and in no way affordable. Do not be alarmed, there are programs out there that are affordable and can do many of the same things.

Module 4

In this module, you will learn all about 3D Game Creation Software. If you want to take the experience that people will get when they play your game it is time to bump it up to 3D. Although two-dimensional games are fun and did have their era, they cannot compare to the excitement and awe that a 3D game can provide. Creating a 3D game will require much more work and time than creating a two-dimensional game but it is more than possible, even for someone who is not that experienced with programming. Nearly anyone can make a 3D game with the right amount of determination, an idea, and the software to help make it all happen.

Module 5

This module will teach you about 3D Game Creation. Unity 3D is a Game Development tool for Windows and Mac OS. This tutorial will help a beginner Unity 3D basics, using a Windows PC, a mouse, and keyboard

Module 6

In this module, you will learn all about Game Modification. Game modifications or “modding” happens when changes are made to a game that developers did not intend to take place. In some cases, game modifications can be used to correct errors that were made while creating the game. Sadly, in most cases, game modification or “modding” is done by members of the online game community who want to alter the way a game plays or the objects in the game.

Module 7

This module will teach you about How To Create a Game on a Social Site. Games on social networking sites are becoming more and more popular. Thousands of people play these games every day and they are truly becoming a way of bringing in a serious amount of money. Games like Candy Crush and Hay Day have advertisements in the games and each time someone sees that advertisement the developers of the game get paid.

Module 8

In this module, you will learn all about Wrapping Up. 2D Game. The Addison-Wesley Learning Series is a collection of hands-on programming guides that help you quickly learn a new technology or language so you can apply what you’ve learned right away

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
