GTGD S1 75% sale
Description
Release date: GTGD S1 will be released on Steam on the 13th of February 0900 PST.
Gamer To Game Developer Series 1 is 30 hours of video tutorials that will teach you how to build a prototype multiplayer FPS from scratch using the free version of the Unity game development engine, and the C# programming language.

I’ve designed these tutorials for gamers who have little to no experience with using Unity or programming.

Here’s what some of my learners have said about GTGD S1:

Numgun commented:
“Thank you a lot for finishing this massive project, you've done a huge service to anyone wanting to make a proper game in Unity (like me), so I'm very grateful for your work.
I do admit its sometimes hard to watch these videos because they are long, slow and you have a very pleasant, calm voice, which all has a relaxing effect on the viewer, but this series shows the complete picture of making a game in ALL its aspects, which makes it very valuable and important, so screw that complaint.”

Tlk1985 commented:
“Amazing tutorials!
You are one of the few that can balance teaching “noob” steps and advanced steps without making either overbearing or lacking.
keep up the awesome job!”

CameronJT commented:
“YOUR VIDEOS ARE SO USEFUL! Please don't stop making them :D”

Ithkuul commented:
“Some of you might think the Series is too long, but it's the best tutorial set I have seen for Unity. Its worth every hour spent. Thank you so much for this series GTGD! :)”

Fhs32825 commented:
“The absolutely BEST video scripting tutorials ever! Keep it up!”

Frederik Petersson commented:
“Hey man, I just wanna say that I started following these tutorials a long time ago when they were new, and because of them, today I am studying game development at the IT university and I'm employed at a games company part-time
Thanks for making this series! I can say for sure that following this series really made me understand coding and gave me the push and the lust for learning more
Thank you!”

What will be included in the package you purchase:
  • All videos with better video quality than on my YouTube channel.
  • Video by video Unity project folders, which of course include scripts, to greatly facilitate your learning and help you debug mistakes that you'll make along the way.
What do you need to follow these tutorials:
  • Unity 3.4.0 and the GIMP, both of which are available for free, and in Video 2 of this series I show you where to get them.
  • An operational computer! You don’t need a leet gaming computer though more power is better. Unity runs on PCs (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8) and Macs.
  • Videos are in .MOV format so a video player such as QuickTime is recommended.
  • Patience and the willingness to learn something different.

How will you benefit from GTGD S1?
  • You'll learn how to write scripts in C# and how to use the Unity game development engine. Learning code never gets old.
  • You'll gain some insight into how I've broken a seemingly complex system into manageable sub systems.
  • You'll be supporting the future of Gamer To Game Developer and make it feasible for me to continue developing detailed tutorials.
  • You'll have differentiated yourself from most of the gamers out there! Now you know what it takes to make a game even if it's a simple one!
How will I benefit from your purchase of GTGD S1?
  • I'll be in a better position to purchase the hardware and software I need to advance the quality of my tutorials.
  • I'll be in a better position to setup a team of hobby team developers like myself for the purpose of producing top notch learning material. There are many talented hobby developers out there on YouTube and I'd like to reach out to them.
  • Gamer To Game Developer will become self sustaining.
About the author
My name is Looqmaan Ali and I'm a mechanical engineer in the railways over in Australia. In my free time I like to program for fun and I've always wanted to make my own game. When I came across Unity years ago I realised that this was the technology that anyone could use to make their own neat game. So that was it. I had to make a game of some sort, so I decided to go with what I thought would be difficult, a multiplayer fps. It turned out that it was difficult for me and I found there to be only a limited amount of learning material covering multiplayer.

Upon completing my prototype multiplayer fps I knew I had accomplished something that so many other gamers out there were dreaming about so I set out to develop a detailed set of tutorials, covering a complete project, where no steps in the development process would be skipped. I wanted to make sure that anyone following the tutorial would be able to replicate everything that I did and at the same time understand why I was doing what I was doing. Based on the feedback I've received with GTGD S1 I think I've achieved my intention reasonably well.

Any chance this will become a franchise of tutorials for multiple technologies?

for anyone looking to create their own indie game this is a must own.

this is the best, most complete, set of video tutorials that takes the viewer from start to end through every step of the process of creating an indie video game.

wow how did a youtube tutorial get greenlit

Thank you everyone for your time and votes! I truly ended up believing that GTGD S1 would not be Greenlit, but after such a long journey it has been! Thank you!

Hey, programming tutorials are expensive. Lots of information on Youtube for free but if you ever HAVE to watch anything from Lynda.com for instance, it's a nuisance since ::ahem:: acquiring them at a discount is hard due to low public demand. That said, if software and book DLC and Indie Game The Movie made it on here, then why not? Hey, easier way to download the supplements and work files at least.

I visited your site and started following your first tutorials. You are an impressive teacher and I must admit, learning to manage all this stuff seemed to me really messy. You show the gamer's point of view in a straight and simple way. Very good work!

Youtube tutorials on Steam, wow you must be really proud!

Why do you play this game? Jan 4 @ 7:43am 
The idea of teaching how to program a game from zero is very good. I plan to do that myself once I finish my game development, I want to teach for free though. But I understand your situation, you need the money to enhance further the quality of your tutorial. This is very honest from yourself.

The world needs more people like you.
