Project-Based & Beginner-Friendly

This tutorial was created for complete beginners who want to understand game development but feel uncomfortable with game programming. With the help of this course, you'll learn how to make a game without coding! Without a doubt, programming is a crucial part of game development. And yet, not everyone has to be a programmer in order to work in this field. You can become a game designer, artist, producer, story copywriter, product manager and so on. However, even if you're not writing the code, it's essential to understand how game mechanics work.

This game development tutorial is all about learning by doing. By actually performing tasks you remember and understand the vital information much better. That's how you gain practical skills which are far more important than theoretical knowledge when developing a product. A highly experienced tutor John Bura we'll guide you through this learning process. He has released over 40 games & apps of his own. John has also been teaching since 2002. So, rest assured, you're in good hands!

Game Development Without Programming

During this tutorial, you'll learn to use Construct 2 game creator. It allows you design projects without any game programming knowledge. It's easy to use and has a lot of great features. The Next Penelope, Our Darker Purpose, and Super Ubie Land were all created using Construct 2. In this tutorial, you'll start with more simplistic games to understand basic game mechanics. Later on, you'll be able to move on to more intricate games of your own.

Construct 2 lets you create games much faster compared to other engines that require coding knowledge. It has a layout editor that allows you to quickly resize, drag and rotate objects as well as apply visual effects and change their settings. These properties make it easier to create your game prototype in hours instead of days or months of work.

Time-Saving and Powerful

Using Construct 2, you can preview your game at any moment. You don't need to waste any time waiting for the game to get compiled. Construct 2 allows you to test the game freely as you're building it. This feature makes it much easier to notice and fix problems!

Another nifty property of Construct 2 is that it offers multiplatform export. You can make a game for the web and a mobile device. Also, you can develop desktop games for PC, MAC, and Linux. The cross-platform development allows you to reach a much wider audience!

Game Art Basics

The second program you'll be using during this course is Adobe Photoshop. Almost any game artist will tell you that learning Photoshop is a must if you want to be successful in this industry. In game development, Photoshop is usually used for 2D art creation. It might be tricky to understand how Photoshop works alone. However, with some help, you'll master them in no time!
