1 of 6

Have you ever wanted to create your own video game? Well there is no better time to start than now, as there are countless tutorials available all over the Internet to help you get started.

When I first started studying Game Design, I used a number of tutorials that helped me learn the vital aspects of creating a game. These tutorials not only helped me learn the ins and outs of the Unity Engine, but also how to program using the C# language. 

While the thought of creating your very first game may be scary, I promise that once you're done, all the time and effort that you have invested will be completely worth it. To help make the process even easier, I have complied together five of the best tutorials on the internet that will make creating your very first game a breeze!

Please note that while most of these tutorials are for beginners, some may happen to require some very basic familiarity with game development terminology and the Unity3D Engine. To help with this, I have included a video above that provides an introduction to game development.

What Development Engine Will You Need?

For the purpose of this list, I will be focusing primarily on Unity3Das it is one of the best industry leading, free and full-featured game engines on the market. Unity is renown for being one of the most user-friendly engines currently available, making it the most ideal engine for those that want to learn how to create video games. The Unity Engine has been responsible for creating such games as Deus Ex GO, Valley, Superhot, Tricky Towers, Ori and the Blind Forest, and many more!

Another key aspect that makes Unity one of the go-to engines for indie creators is its online store, which is full of helpful tools, assets, and example projects to help assist you in creating your own games. Unity will also allow you to publish your game onto multiple different platforms such iOS, Android, PC, Mac & Consoles. 

For full details on the Unity engine, you can visit their official website where you can find instructions on how to install the engine, tutorials and guides, community forums and their asset store.
