Skip About this course

Never before has the video game market been at a better time. There are currently many platforms available and the emergence of mobile devices has revolutionized the sector.

The existence of multiple platforms implies great challenges for developers in decision making, both in the choice of platforms and in the sizing of work teams.

One solution to these problems is to use a game engine, and without a doubt the most popular and used engine of the moment is Unity.

Unity is the most popular engine for reasons such as its powerful tools, its ability to generate games on more than 20 different platforms, its excellent learning curve and the hundreds of add-ons available to it developed by third parties.

Learner testimonials

" We are a small company that had already made some simple apps. Signing up for the Unity course was one of the best decisions made regarding the development of apps. The course is very didactic, practical and inspiring and it was the springboard that pushed us to make apps and games for Android. We have _ developed 8 apps in Unity on Google Play. One of them, Dark Stories, has 1,000,000 downloads. As Unity is cross platform we will also bring out the apps for iOS._ " --Rob from Treebit Games
