New Launcher For S1 Complete!

April 8th, 2014

I've been working on overdrive and here it is :). No need for QuickTime anymore or manual navigation to the project folders directory. The new launcher is complete and you'll all be finding a 5 gig download coming your way when you restart Steam. The old install is removed and the new and improved one put in its place.

I've also included a Unity 4.3.4 project folder as well.

Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone who helped bring GTGD S1 to Steam!

About the Software

If you've been dreaming about making a game then your dream is about to come true. Welcome to the GTGD Series.

In S1 you will learn how to develop an awesome little multiplayer FPS from scratch using Unity Free and the C# programming language. I’ve designed these tutorials for gamers who have no experience with using Unity. This package includes all video by video project folders to make it easier for you to debug your mistakes and accelerate your learning.

GTGD S1 was made with Unity 3.4.0 and it works fine in Unity 4 with some minor edits to the code. Video S2.2 explains what bits of code need to be changed.

GTGD S2 is out!

What gamers on my YouTube channel have said about S1:


Frederik Petersson commented:
“Hey man, I just wanna say that I started following these tutorials a long time ago when they were new, and because of them, today I am studying game development at the IT university and I'm employed at a games company part-time. Thanks for making this series! I can say for sure that following this series really made me understand coding and gave me the push and the lust for learning more
Thank you!”


Numgun commented:
“Thank you a lot for finishing this massive project, you've done a huge service to anyone wanting to make a proper game in Unity (like me), so I'm very grateful for your work. I do admit its sometimes hard to watch these videos because they are long, slow and you have a very pleasant, calm voice, which all has a relaxing effect on the viewer, but this series shows the complete picture of making a game in ALL its aspects, which makes it very valuable and important, so screw that complaint.”

Tlk1985 commented:
“Amazing tutorials!
You are one of the few that can balance teaching “noob” steps and advanced steps without making either overbearing or lacking.
Keep up the awesome job!”


Ithkuul commented:
“Some of you might think the Series is too long, but it's the best tutorial set I have seen for Unity. Its worth every hour spent. Thank you so much for this series GTGD! :)”

I am a 30+ year developer that decided to finally try game development. I'm currently working through the tutorials and find they are full of good information on unity and its tools. I can recommend GTGD S1 for anyone that already has a good understanding of programing and just looking to pick up unity development.
The author is obviously self-taught and talented but, that said, there are glaring mistakes in code that could be confusing to a novice programmer. His copy and pasting of code instead of creating a function, his misunderstanding of how some construct work and a general lack of OOP can be a bit of a distraction or teach bad habits to a novice developer.
I suggest anyone new to software development to find tutorials on C# that focus on “Object Oriented” programming first. Once you have an understanding of the basics these tutorials become more of a “What Can Unity Do” tutorial then a programming tutorial.
Even with the issues with the coding, I will recommend this as a good way to learn the basics of unity. The fact that this is based on Unity v3.4 is not that big a deal. The information should migrate to the next version with only a minimal effort; migrating code normal in software development and just another lesson.

I'm not very good with reviews, just know that GTGD S1 is worth every penny!

It's great for anyone thinking of developing their own indie video game using Unity.

The video tutorials are worth every penny to anyone getting into Unity and indie game development. They are in fact as good or better than anything else that maybe available out there.

They are very through professional made series of video tutorials that walk indie game developers step by step from beginning to end in the development of a multiplayer video game from start to finish.

Also when you buy this you also get a fully working starter video game and complete source code for it that you can use to help you get started with your game. The starter game with source code itself is easily worth $50, just go to unity asset store and see how much other multiplayer starter games cost and you get much more than that..

So you can go through the tutorials type in the source code or save the time and use the included source code.

And what the author did not get into series one because they are more advances topics he is working on in series two!

So I encourage everyone interested in creating their own indie video game to pick up a copy it it well worth it.

I myself purchased on my own the video tutorials and completed them recently and I've tried just about every tutorials out there for Unity and this is the very best I've found.

Finally, its well over 30 hours of material. If you just watch the tutorials it will take 30 hours, but if you go through them and type in the code and do all the work it will easily take many more hours than that. I've been at it now for over 8 months. Doing localization now and moving constants to config files...

These tutorials are great. I love game devolopment and I never actually used unity.
The only thing is that I dont agree with the price, $24.99. The videos are free on Youtube, so paying for this makes not
that much sense. The only reason I payed was to support this guy. His videos are awesome and really easy to follow.

Just a recommendation, Can you maybe lower the price?

After FINALLY having the time to look into this. I finally started the series! I began watching the first 2 and so far I haven't been lost yet. Very professional. Very straight-forward. Very quick to the point without leaving you in the dust.

However, I'm a little disappointed on the price... When I first purchased this. I bought it within a few days it was released and the price originally was about $25. Now I see the price has been dropped to only a couple of bucks which is a little bit of a bummer to me :/

WARNING:

It's good tutorial, but a newer one is coming out. it's based on an older version of Unity 3.5 and I believe it's on something like 4.5 now (and states the code in this tutorial will NOT work on the later versions). These videos are also FREE on the website, you are basically paying for the project files and I kinda feel a little ripped off with the amount I paid for that. My advice, wait until GTGD 2 hits, and check the main website out first before you pay anything.
