By now everyone has heard about virtual reality (VR) games. We are at the beginning of a new era where people are immersed into virtual worlds and they get to do anything they wish.
Now is the time to start making virtual reality games. This is what this course will teach you.
The global games business is booming, but not everyone's a winner, as games have turned into a two speed market - giant sectors where giants rule, and small high-growth sectors where nimble indies can still make their mark.
Your goal with this course and others is to learn how to become a successful indie game developer.
Whether you have no experience making games with Unity or you are a seasoned developer, this course will get you going full speed in no time.
You will be shown how to start making VR games from scratch and publish them in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
By the way, this course is also meant for people that already have existing Unity projects and would like to quickly turn those projects into VR games.
There are so many tutorials, guides and courses out there, that it’s hard to know where to start.
We’ve decided to focus on Unity rather than other platforms because the team behind Unity has a great vision. Each time a new device comes out, the Unity HQ team adds support for it and also creates special libraries for it. We believe you should focus on Unity as well.
For example, Oculus Rift and Samsung VR are fully operational on Unity 5.
Unity also entered the live cinematic world (animated movies, think Toy Story). The future is bright for Unity developers (more about the future of Unity).
There’s also been a change in the mobile app store category ranking system which makes it harder to get exposure for new apps. It means developers need to focus on a few apps instead of bombarding the app store with re-skins. Nowadays, an app is a continuous work of art where developers need to listen to the users and keep updating the app to give them exactly what they want.
As VR adoption continues the demand for these games will increase. Learn how to make VR games with this course and be on the forefront of an exciting time in game development.
