Artist Formula for Success

So how do we get there?
Well, us being artists we decided to write an incredible mathematical formula that would solve this riddle. That didn’t work...so we decided to draw pictures (above) that would represent this amazing equation.

To put it in to words, it would read:
You need basic computer skills, extra time, consistent training and professional guidance to become a ‘Designer of Games’!

Pretty cool, right? Okay, here’s our ‘Ten Step Plan’ to get you there.

1. Syllabus and Objectives - This is your HUB, your step by step guide through the course. (When ready, click here)

2. Understanding YOU - Let’s find out where you are in your training and what type of personality you have.

3. Unity Software Education - You’ve got to respect the tool before you play with it. Here’s where we learn it!

4. JavaScript Programming and API - It’s important that we are both speaking the same logical language.

5. Lab 1: Point and Click - ‘Newbie Training’ - Learning the basics of making a game with Unity.

6. Lab 2: 2D Space Shooter - With the basics out of the way, it’s time to add a layer of depth to game development.

7. Unity Tool Development - ‘Amateur Training’ - Tool development takes you from Newbie to Amateur to see what you are made of. Here’s where you start to show your desire to become a game developer.

8. Lab 3: 2D Mario Clone (Side Scroller) - ‘Apprentice Training’ - We take everything you’ve learned, mix in a bunch of ‘New’ ideas and features, and add a professional touch to give you some crazy mad skills.

9. Lab 4: 3D Mario Clone (3rd Person Adventure) - ‘Professional Training’ - All your training leads to this moment. We take your 2D skills and push them in to the 3D arena. This is where the Professional Polish happens.  

10. Conclusion and Future Steps - You’ve made it! Now is the time to put things together and move forward, toward an exciting future!

So, you’re a Newbie, an Artist, Designer, Programmer, Gamer, or just stumbled across this by accident. Fantastic! If you’ve managed to read everything to this point, then you must have an interest in making games.

Let’s define a few terms mentioned above to help understand our experience levels.

Newbie - A person who is new to a concept or idea (Inexperienced user).

Amateur - A person inexperienced or unskilled in a particular activity (fan). A person who engages in a study for pleasure rather than for financial benefit.

Apprentice - A person who is learning a trade or profession by working alongside an expert, usually for a set period of time.

Professional - A person who is an expert at his or her work. A person who earns a living from that work.
