Playcrafting is offering a rather exceptional class this summer in the Boston area we wanted to make sure we helped spread the word about. Starting in June, this 8 week class will teach you the ropes of Unity, see you making four different games and taking part in a course that’s seen proven results in the New York area…now in Boston!
This course will take you from beginner to intermediate by having you build three small games with the class and a fourth you create yourself with help from the instructor. Both Unity editor scripting and C# scripting are used thoroughout. Each session includes 30 minutes for troubleshooting and critiquing the current project. By the end of the class, you’ll be able build your game idea in Unity and export it to the platform of your choice.
The course will take place from June 12th to August 7th (except on July 4th, because fireworks and patriotism) in Boston (at an as of yet to be determined location), every Monday and Wednesday from 6:30pm to 9:00pm.
The cost of enrollment is $2000 per student, and payment plans are available,though a $500 deposit is required to secure a spot.
All that you’ll need other than your registration fee is a laptop with Unity installed (which you can find for free here!).
