Course Description

Unreal Engine 4 is one of the most powerful and accessible game engines currently available and with the release of Unreal Engine 5 just around the corner, there's no better time to start your Epic journey.

Learn to not only use UE4 but gain transferable skills that will assist you in any game development endeavour.

Build a complete game from an empty project up to packaging and sharing your work while getting an understanding of:

  • The Unreal Interface and ecosystem
  • Player Input and character movement
  • Working with Splines
  • Level creation
  • Creating custom-level design tools
  • UI and Widgets
  • Textures
  • Materials
  • Effects

Using a familiar "Roll a Ball" style game as the template for the course you'll get the opportunity to learn a huge amount about the Unreal Engine and understand how to transfer that knowledge into your projects.

Not only that, but as we go through the course we will take the time to not only get things functional and leave it there as in many beginner examples. We'll take deeper dives into refining player movement to be more enjoyable for the user. Looking at efficient ways to make reusable tools. Adding particle and sound effects to add impact to our game, all while keeping a focus on good programming practices.

Rob Brooks

Hi, I'm Rob.

I'm a Game Developer with a  BSc(Hons) degree in Game Technology.

My primary skill is as a programmer with experience using C# with XNA, Unity3D and C++ in UE4. However my interest in all aspects of design have led me to become proficient with many aspects of 2D and 3D design.

More than anything I’m passionate about discovering what truly makes a game the most an engrossing and enjoyable experience possible.

Since graduating I've been privileged to experience working with smaller indie development companies and large national developers as well as working solo on many of my own projects and Game Jam events. I look forward to being able to share the experience I’ve gained from these different aspects of design with all of you.
