Virtual reality is the next step in video games. The incredible thing about VR is that the environment created can be similar to the real world, or it can be fantastical. The only thing holding you back from bringing something exceptional to life is not being able to unlock your creativity. The gaming environment allows you to be within a 3D environment and interact with it for a truly immersive experience.
This course package will teach you to develop your own 2D, 3D and VR games using the Unreal Engine and Unity game development platform. You will learn how to master multi-platform game development techniques using these industry recognised tools, learning to script from scratch and build exciting and revolutionary games.
