Building a game that people love to play is an unparalleled experience in creative design. If you would like to give it a go, the fifteen courses in the Game Developer Bundle offer a comprehensive starting point, and you can pay what you want for them at 9to5Toys Specials.

The bundle has three main tracks, with the courses grouped into collections. Folks wanting to avoid code get five courses dedicated to development by other means. This includes tuition on how to use software such as Stencyl and Construct 2 to bring your ideas to life, plus content on exporting your finished games. A collection of four courses focuses on Unity 3D, the engine that powers many of the world’s biggest titles. You learn animation, particle effects, physics, and how to design levels. The other option is to learn HTML5, with the six-course collection showing you how to create 2D physics, in-game music, and the parallax effect.

  • Game Development for Non-Coders 5-Course Bundle ($128)
  • Unity 3D Game Development and Design 4-Course Bundle ($225)
  • HTML5 App and Game Development 6-Course Bundle ($186)
