    Hi everyone, i hope you are all doing well.

    I just started to use Unity and finished the "Create with Code" course (https://learn.unity.com/course/create-with-code?uv=2018.4). I'm now trying to make my first mini game, a dofus-like tactical RPG (only the fight scene)

    I wanted to know if you can propose me some good courses or at least tell me if those are good.

    Programming course :
    - Beginner Programming : Unity Game Dev Course - https://learn.unity.com/course/unity-game-dev-course-programming-part-1?language=en
    - Intermediate Programming : Unity Game Dev Course - https://learn.unity.com/course/unity-game-dev-courses-programming-part-2?language=en
    - Advanced Programming : Unity Game Dev Course - https://learn.unity.com/course/unity-game-dev-courses-programming-part-3?language=en

    Art and Animation course :
    - Beginner Art : Unity Game Dev Course - https://learn.unity.com/course/unity-game-development-course-beginner-art?language=en
    - Intermediate Art : Unity Game Dev - https://learn.unity.com/course/unity-game-development-course-intermediate-art?language=en
    - Advanced Art : Unity Game Dev - https://learn.unity.com/course/unity-game-development-course-advanced-art?language=en

    For the Art and Animation course, do you think i can use Blender instead of Maya ? Because Maya only have et 30d free trial.

    Thanks in advance for reading me

    Hi not sure about your question sorry, but having just finished the create with code courses myself. I would have no idea about anything like what you are wanting to do. Have you got some experience of coding or making games outside unity create with code series? if not I would start with something simpler like I'm thinking of a snake game or pong game. I tweet my progress on twitter under the name @kmo861 if you want to chat or follow me.

    Hi, thanks for your reply and sorry if i'm not clear enough.

    The little game i want to do is just to practice what i learnt during the "create with code" course.

    What I want to know is if there is some courses I can follow to learn more things and improve my skills. For example, do the courses mentionned above interesting ?

    Sorry if my english is not good enough x)

    Them links you posted do seem helpful, but I posted about what next steps could be a bit back after the create with code tutorials and a few suggested try to build a basic game myself. Which makes sense as all the create with code is following/copying what you need to do so trying something yourself will be a good way to test what you have learnt. Or even redo the tutorials and add your own bits. Like I’ve done to first game with cars spawning at opposite end of road and coming towards the player. No reason to it just to practice the spawning that you learn in tutorial 2. I did tutorial 2 and added in extra food and you need to feed each animal a certain food, added score, game over and restart. So just play cxxx around with them to learn how to do the code for different things. Then think of a basic game where you know how to do parts of it then build on it. Someone suggested pong was a good first game but I think snake like Nokia phones used to have would be good and could be expanded to a 3D version eventually. I’m thinking I know how to get the snake to move and go through walls or lose when it hit a wall I know how to add power ups and sort of how to use them. So I’ll only need to work out how to make power ups make snake grow and how to make them appear one at a time.
