Getting your beginner game on

For those of you taking your first steps into game dev, consider The Ultimate Guide to Game Development, which we collaborated on with Udemy.

You'll even get a certificate of completion to commemorate your foray into game development.

This is a proven starting point, with over 10,000 students enrolled and becoming proficient in Unity game development. This course is also available in Spanish and Portuguese.

If you've ever dreamed of creating a game from scratch, then our Unity Game Dev Course: Swords and Shovels, made in partnership with Pluralsight, is for you. For a $12 monthly subscription, you work at your own pace to create an entire game, Swords and Shovels, which will teach you essential game development skills across the entire workflow.

For those who have already mastered fundamental Unity skills and are looking to get to the next level with step-by-step game-dev learning opportunities, we will soon be offering intermediate-level Swords and Shovels courses, so stay tuned.

Enter the world of Unity for VR

The VR market is booming, so now's a great time to get up to speed on Unity, one of the top tools for building virtual reality experiences. To enable this, we have partnered with Udacity to deliver a Virtual Reality Nanodegree that is dedicated to those new to both Unity and building virtual reality projects. This degree covers all aspects of Unity VR development, from the basics all the way through to optimization.

And with Udacity collaborating with such innovators as Google VR, Vive and Samsung, you can be sure that you're on your way to becoming industry-ready with such relevant, up-to-date learning content.
