Getting Started with Game Development

Game Dev - The Building Blocks

At the Microsoft //build 2016 conference this year we created some great labs for the attendees to work on. Being a lover of all things game dev related, I worked on the Introduction to Unity lab. To prepare you for that hands on with real game artwork/code, I recommend you get started with the Building Blocks: Game Development course (below) from Microsoft Virtual Academy to understand the foundations of game development with Unity.



This course covers topics from game objects & architecture to coding & animations and a bit of everything in between.

If you aren't sure where to start with game dev, this is the perfect bite sized intro course for you and best of all, it is free. The course runs about two hours and covers 8 sections. Check out the module listing with this icon in the player below.




Once you've finished up this course, be sure to check out the "Orks with Forks" lab we created which is the add-on content to this course. That video is at the bottom of this page.




Build 2016 Code Labs (The add-on to the above course) can be watched below with the code open-sourced over here.
