Godot Course Kickstarter Next Monday

Do you want to become a better game developer? Gdquest will be on Kickstarter next week, to fund the creation of a game creation course for the new Godot game engine. More precisely for Godot 3, which will be out this summer!

I’m doing it with the devs’ support: Rémi (akien) followed the project since the very beginning and ensured the project will be as good as it should be.

What you’ll get

Once we reach the initial funding goal, you’ll get at least 40 exclusive tutorials, 10 assignments and commented code sources in the premium version. I sure could lower the quality and make a lengthier series, but I’d rather help you learn more in less time. If you watch Gdquest on Youtube, you’ll know I’m all about quality over quantity. Also, take it as minimum! I don’t want to stop there, and i’ll work hard to provide as much value as I can.

The training will reuse the work done for the Krita course, but in a top-down game

The series will revolve around a 2d Zelda-like, as the mechanics we’ll look at are directly applicable to all kinds of games. But the goal is to teach you much more than that! It will give you a better understanding of the engine, of the game creation workflow, and how to write solid code! Fellow developers and teachers offered to give advice and share insights to elevate the content even more.

Ss you might expect, the higher the funding, the more content you will get, regardless of your pledge. Every single cent will be spent on the course. There’s so much to cover, including shaders, animation,

30 days tutorial challenge

There is already a ton of videos on the channels for you to watch now. But there’s only a short series dedicated to Godot. During the Kickstarter campaign, i’ll release one free tutorial every single day, mostly about the engine! It’s going to be tough, but that’s my way of giving back to the community.

It’s all based on your feedback

I put out a form to ask you what you wanted to learn exactly, and you’ve been more than 600 to reply!

Form reponses. Would you support the course on Kickstarter? 3 our of 4 persons said yes

Your requests shaped the project already. There are hundreds of completely different suggestions, some as challenging as “show how to make a 3d MMORPG”, so I can’t cover them all. But I took note of everything that’s most useful, and exciting. You’ll see some of them in the free tutorials.

It starts next week

Crowdfunding, by essence, involves the community. It Cannot happen without you.

The Kickstarter starts on Monday 22 at 12 PM CEST.
