Course Game Developer Junior Expert with Unity 3D | GAMING & METAVERSE duration Part-time
With an average annual growth of 8%, videogames are a constantly evolving and rapidly expanding market. The videogame demand is already so high that there are not enough high-level developers in the world to satisfy it! Thanks to many recent investments aimed at developing the so-called metaverses, this market is destined to grow even more in the near future.
Aside from an increasingly large pool of gamers, the driving force in this sector is definitely represented by the presence of large investors and important international market players – such as Facebook (now Meta) – who pour millions into the development of new technologies every year. It was thanks to these investments that it was possible to take important steps forward in the field of Virtual Reality. In fact, current technologies have made it possible to revive, and to make much more accessible, a dream that until a few years ago was still a utopia: a low-cost virtual reality available to the masses.
This course aims to introduce all videogame enthusiasts to the universe of game development by providing them with all the necessary knowledge required to create complete and captivating videogame products through a training experience that will take place partly in a virtual environment. Through a very practical and immersive approach, which includes the development of a true videogame, you will learn how to master the game engine, the programming IDE and the development framework. The large pool of skills acquired will allow you to imagine, design and develop any kind of idea, knowing how to evaluate its critical issues, development times, costs and validity on the market.
