Course Overview
Hello everyone, my name is Brian. I have degrees in engineering, fine arts, and a graduate diploma in digital character animation. I have worked in feature film, television, and video games. In this course we're going to examine 2D fundamentals of Unity by creating the basics for a 2D side scrolling platformer. We'll start off by building some basic platforms and then move on to the character. Together we'll explore the basic building blocks to create a character. We'll look at animation and write the code to get your character running and jumping. Finally, we'll build the dynamic camera to ensure that your character stays properly in view as it moves about the screen. After you've completed this course you will have the basic elements to start building your own 2D side scrolling platformer in Unity. I really hope you enjoy this course as much as I did creating it for you. Good luck everyone.
