Table of contents
In this course, you will learn how spawn mobs in waves, level up your hero, add feedback, navigate your inventory system, and close the game loop.
Prerequisites for this course are: familiarity with Swords and Shovels, Unity, and C#.
In game development, to close the loop means to complete the cycle of a game with a win or a lose.
It is possible to use C# in Unity with the free version of the software, but it is easier to work with C# in Unity if you have the Pro license.
The core of Unity is written in C++ and most of the editor is C# including some things like the Terrain engine.
