Have you ever wanted to build games like the ones you fell in love with when you first started playing? Learning to design your own titles might be more involved than playing them, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it.

It just means you should study with a resource like The Game Design & Development Bundle. This seven-course training can help you learn Unity, Maya and more game dev tools. And for a limited time, it’s on sale for $203 (regularly $1,519).

Learn to build the games you want to play

Whether you’re a total beginner or have tried your hand at game design before, this bundle by One Education is a great place to start. This online course provider trains students using a variety of mediums, including video and audio lectures, exams and traditional handouts.

The first course, Game Design for Beginners, is a massive guide that can get you up to speed on industry best practices and show you how to use some common tools and software. In addition, you’ll learn to apply game layers, acquire and use free assets, and avoid the top 10 mistakes people make while creating a game.

Learning to code your game might be the steepest learning curve you have to climb. In fact, getting the code to work is often considered one of the most complex parts of making a game, but you’ve got help. Courses like Game Development Using Cocos2d-x v3 C++ and HTML5 Game Development can illustrate the logic behind coding your game and show you how to start creating a multi-device and cross-platform game. You’ll also learn to develop, enhance and animate your game using tools like Cocos2d Creator.

This bundle packs more than 235 hours of instruction into a set of seven approachable courses that can help you start creating your own games. Whether doing it for a hobby or career, you can learn at your own pace and begin crafting the titles you always wanted to play.
