Course Overview
Do you play video games? Have you ever wondered how they are made? Would you like to learn how to make scenes for a level in a computer game?

The course for you is HERE!

The Introduction to Computer Game Creation course will take you through the basics of digital game creation. The course aims to show you the basics of digital game creation, applying different techniques that most of us interested in gaming have seen time and time again.

This software is used to create 3D environments, and as such is also relevant for people or companies interested in things like Virtual Reality and Digital Twin development.

At the end of this course, you will be able to use the techniques demonstrated, within the Unreal Engine 5 program. Unreal Engine is a free piece of software owned by Epic Games. You will use techniques to create a first-person shooter where you will also add some Artificial Intelligence to an enemy. You will also learn how to create the player’s health bar, set up dangerous objects that can damage the player’s health, pick up collectible items and a whole host of other useful game creation techniques.

Famous games created in Unreal Engine 5 include: Fortnite, Yoshi's Crafted World, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Street Fighter 5, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Unreal Engine 5 is the latest version of this software.

No prior knowledge is required other than a familiarity with the standard workings of a computer - learn the technical skills you need to help you create a modern first person computer game.
Ongoing assessment via tasks and tutor monitoring
There are no formal entry requirements, although users are expected to be familiar with the basics of computer and internet use.
This course will provide many skills necessary to assist with gaining employment in the creative media and games development sectors. This includes the development of 3D games and 3D environments in general. It is also increasingly being seen used in engineering and manufacturing sectors, in Virtual Reality platforms and Digital Twin creation.
£99 or free if eligible for PLA funding. To be eligible, you must be over 19, employed and earning under £29,534 per year or a furloughed worker (any salary) or self-employed
