C++ Fundamentals: Game Programming For Beginners
Learn to make games using industry standard C++ and Raylib
Learning to program can be dull, and learning C++ is hard enough without having to learn a game engine as well. In this course we teach you coding the fun way, by making games! And we’ll be using a library so you can focus on learning pure C++ and good programming practice. You’ll start by compiling your first program in C++, using Visual Studio Code as your text editor.
Then create your first axe dodging game using the Raylib library. This project introduces the basic concepts of programming: variables, loops and if-statements. You expand on this in Dapper Dasher, by building a side-scrolling running game. In addition to covering essential programming concepts such as structs and functions, you’ll learn to animate 2D characters and make your game pretty.
