We love making courses and teaching people how to develop video games. Our Kickstarter's & courses have done really well in the past and that has given us the opportunity to be able to launch a full fledged course with all proceeds going to charity. 

We chose St. Jude’s Play Live because of their message and goal. We are excited to be able to raise funds for sick children. 

Anyone who pledges $1 dollar or more will receive the full survival game course & a special badge on our forum displaying how much they contributed to our fundraiser.

higher badge amounts will grant special access to programs on the stretech website. There is more information in the reward descriptions but higher amounts include access to free courses every single month, access to our development live streams & more.

For our highest reward we are offering lifetime access to our courses, kits, assets, and everything else you can think of. We only offer this through our Kickstarter's. If you have any questions or concerns about this reward, please contact us through email or the comments.

One month after we release our survival game course, we will be hosting a survival game competition on our forums. Users on or forum will be able to vote the best survival game. The winner of the competition will receive a $500 donation in their name. 

We're organizing this competition because we feel it will encourage users to learn faster and want to improve their skills even more.

Course Layout 

We are going to break down each chapter into stages. This will make everything easier to understand and less discouraging for new developers, creating a better and more enjoyable experience for our viewers. The chapters will look something like this, but are subject to change in orientation 

  • Unity Basics
  • C# Basics
  • Basic Character Development - Animating, weapon system, texturing, health and vitals, stamina and sprinting
  • Graphical System
  • Advanced Texturing & Texture Map Development
  • Intermediate C# 
  • Building In Unity
  • Inventory 
  • Looting
  • Survival Aspects
  • Hunting & Enemy AI
  • Introduction To Muiltplayer
  • Main Menu
  • Saving Data
  • Loading Data
  • Intermediate Multiplayer - Animating, Shooting, Death

More to be added shortly.

Our team is developing some amazing assets for this course. We will be developing every asset needed to build a complete survival game, these assets will be given in kit form to all backers. 

Some of the assets we are planning on developing

  • 3 Assault Rifles
  • 1 Sniper Rifle
  • 2 Handguns
  • Grenades
  • Trigger Explosives
  • Locking Modules
  • Construction/Building objects - doors, walls, roofs, stairs, railings, & interior objects
  • Chests
  • Animals
  • Character Model
  • Nature Assets
  • Custom Image effects

There are many more assets to be added, too many to fit in this list.

We will be releasing the course in July. This will give us enough time to develop all the assets for the video game and focus on making the course as high quality as possible. 

We also need time to finish the forums on our website so we can fulfill all pledge rewards properly and smoothly.
