About This Course
Kickstart your game design career by building your own prototype in Unreal Engine 5. Learn the full development cycle of production as you transform your ideas into a fully playable 3D game. Then, step over to the emerging industry of virtual reality with the Meta Quest 2. You’ll dive deeper with Adobe Medium — an innovative VR sculpting software — and take your place at the helm of creativity for your game’s final vision.
In week one, build your prototype using the fundamentals of game design in UE5. Implement Blueprint Visual Scripting to develop essential mechanics and build the framework of your prototype. Define the scope of your project and transform your story and ideas into an immersive experience with compelling gameplay.
In week two, don the Meta Quest 2 and step into an immersive virtual studio where you’ll sketch, build, and sculpt dynamic 3D assets to customize your game. Experience the workflow of professional 3D game artists first-hand, using Adobe Medium to craft your design in vivid virtual reality and taking your ideas from concept to final 3D model. Finally, you’ll import your creations into UE5 and launch your finished prototype!
With an essential game design and 3D sculpting skill set, you’ll have all the tools you need to polish your portfolio and prep your work for college admissions and career applications.
