Have you ever spent hours in front of your mobile screen increasing levels and resources in an Idle Game? Have you ever wanted to know how to create a game like this?

Idle Games are the most downloaded games on android and iOS, in this course, I will teach you how you can start creating your first idle game. Together we will create this game from scratch, implementing new features as we move on.

The first thing we need to do is learn how to rig our characters using the 2D Bone Animation package, we need to attach bones to sprites and later animate them, once we have our characters we can create their behavior.

Idle Games use a lot of User interfaces, in this course, you will create multiple panels, work with canvases and resolutions.

To build this game we need to create some systems, for example, the Upgrade system to be able to Upgrade your Miners so they have better stats.

In this game we will implement Managers, our managers can boost our miners to make them more productive by increasing their stats.

To end this course you will create a Currency system to display your resources with letters.

In this course, everything is covered in detail.

Not a completed game by the end, but it is a start. He moves along very quickly, which some might find a bit hard. Just be ready to pause and it's fine. The game comes together really well. However, he doesn't teach a few key aspects here, like saving & loading game progress. (Without a save progression system how could anyone actually play this? All progress is lost if you close the game) I feel like other instructors make sure their finished course is a full vertical slice of a complete game that you can expand on. I can tell with this course I'm going to have to figure a lot of things on my own before it's ready to played. Disappointed.

I took the course from Japan and enjoyed it very much. It would be great if you could offer courses on other IDLE games. (taptitans, afk arena)

A wonderful course where you will learn A LOT. Real examples of how to create a game. Thanks Gianny for helping your students who had the previous version, and if you are new and want to buy this course, totally Recommended!

I would say a little on the fast side for beginners, for intermediate its a welcomed pace, and got quite a lot done from the beginning. Amazing how fast the game comes together, but its real nice to see the structure of the game build out piece by piece. Extremely happy with this course. Highly recommend for Intermediate/Advanced Unity Users.
