It covers topics such as installing Unity, understanding its interface, working with game objects, cameras, and lights, importing assets, scripting in C#, setting up input systems, creating and instantiating prefabs, basic debugging techniques, implementing polymorphism and abstract classes, handling collisions, creating a game manager, and adding particles and sound effects to games.




Once you have completed the course, you can start Game Programming Essentials 2 which takes you further down the road and enlights you on how to truly collaborate on a project, how to improve the looks and feel of the project. It covers topics such as version controlling, game configuration using scriptable objects, proper structuration of a project, and how to create technical documentation. It also gives a glimpse into shader programming, custom mesh editing, and many other topics.
