What You'll Get
This 8 Week Unity course taught by Stuido Studios will get you directly involved and working within the indie game scene in NYC. Besides learning the ins and outs of Unity and launching a game (maybe your first) on Itch.io by the end of the course, you’ll also gain access to a thriving community of local indie game developers.
Over 100 developers (new and veteran alike) get the training they need on this popular engine with this course each year. We’d love to have you join us for this next session!
Can’t We Just Learn Unity Online?
- Sure you can, but nothing compares to learning Unity alongside other people just like you:
- Take advantage of peer coding and receive real time assistance from instructors/fellow students.
- Collaborate with others and form teams for group projects.
- Work on a focused final project that teaches you how to pitch your ideas, give/receive feedback, organize a team, manage a production pipeline, release on Itch.io, and showcase your game.
- Receive post-class consultation by Stuido Studios.
- Form lasting relationships and connections with other designers and developers in NYC.
- Show your games at Playcrafting events and make a name for yourself.
- Get invited to the Playcrafting Alumni Discord and network with previous students and instructors actively working in the industry.
- We assure you that this course is the most effective way to learn the Unity engine even if your goal is to use it for content other than games.
- Since game production incorporates every essential aspect of the Engine, completing the first 2 projects will give you the tools you need to start working on your desired project.
Students are required to bring a laptop with Unity installed. The software can be downloaded for free online.
Students will create 3 projects over the course of 8 weeks. The initial 2 projects will be taught within the first 4 weeks, giving you a strong foundation to focus on your final project of choice, which can range from a conceptual art piece to a full-fledged video game.
