FREE Game Development Books and Courses

Get started with game development with these complimentary resources:

Zenva's RPG Academy is the world's first on-demand curriculum designed to teach ANYONE how to code and build impressive 2D and 3D RPG games with Unity.

Learn to craft your own enticing and dangerous worlds with Unity, a free and highly popular game development engine, and discover just how rewarding it can be to see your players explore the adventures that you've created for them.

100% Beginner-Friendly

If you've never coded before your journey will begin with a module that introduces Unity and the C# programming language by teaching you how to build a simple action RPG.

Once you have a solid foundation of Unity and C#, we'll present you with an assortment of modules covering different RPG mechanics such as battles, map exploration, non-player characters (NPCs) and crafting systems.

Finally, you’ll progress the more advanced modules, which cover topics such as artificial intelligence, state machines and C# programming patterns.

Curriculum

Get 3 Bonus Interactive Courses

By backing this campaign you'll also get access to 3 interactive C# and Unity courses in our mobile applications Codemurai (available on Android and iOS).

Stretch Goals

A new course will be added to the RPG Academy for every $10,000 AUD that we raise, starting at $20,000!

Start Building Games with Expert Instruction

The curriculum of this program has been designed by Pablo Farias Navarro, certified Unity developer and founder of ZENVA, where he has taught game development to over 300,000 students from all over the world.

As part of his work in coding education, Pablo was invited to join the Intel Software Innovator, Microsoft Bizspark and Oculus Start programs, and has run game programming workshops in San Francisco, Brisbane and Bangalore.

Join the Ranks of Our 300,000 Satisfied Students

Zenva Academy is the leading platform to learn programming and game development. Our on-demand courses include video lessons and downloadable project files, which you can watch from all devices, anywhere, at any time.

You'll also receive access to a premium forum where you can get help directly from our team of instructors.

Risks and challenges

Look forward to playing and recommending the games you'll be building!
