  1. Hello everyone! I've heard many of you guys say that the Make a Game course was getting too old and frankly I've never been fully satisfied with it so I decided to make this video as the first one in a mini-series on creating your first game. It's of course super beginner oriented (just like Make a Game) but I hope the more experienced of you will forgive me for that! 😀 I will of course still be doing more advanced tutorials! Anyway, hope you like the video 😀

  2. thanks for making this video im tryna start a project of making a 2 d platformer i never knesw and still dont know how to code lol but u made me choose wich engine i should use so i thought unity would be good thanks for getting this much info for starters lol i still dont know how to basic code

  3. My kid says that he wants to make a game called Sterling is cuphead because he’s such a fan of that game he likes it so much that he wants to make a game where he’s in cuphead he says that the middle boss is the one he wants to make most but he doesn’t know how to make games yet
    So I think I should show this video to him thanks for the information

  4. I just woke up from a dream that gave me an idea for what could be a neat horror game, and I'm more or less trying to see, if I should realize two dreams at once by making it.
    The actual dream I had when I dozed off earlier, and the dream of creating a game, that I've had ever since I was a child.
    I haven't tried so far, because I'm terrible with computers and it's just incredibly intimidating to a guy, who had to be told that you can search things on Google, without needing to be on the main page…
    Who knows, maybe I'll get something to work… maybe I'll find my passion.
    Stranger things have happened.

  5. can a 9th grader possibly do a game? I'm in computer science/game design and I have this video game I've always wanted to do ever since I got into undertale. my teacher in that class said he'd help with it once I was learning coding in his class (currently we're learning about basic Unity stuff without the coding stuff) but I realized that we need more than just coding and art stuff. We'd need music producers as well. So, is it possible?

  6. i have a good idea for a game but im not really good at making real games i have roblox games but not any unity ones the name of the game i wanna make is timed out
