Making some Game Dev Tutorials :)


TBH I have not thought about it as yet…

My initial thoughts right now is that I dont have much time to do them (I am pretty time taxed as it is trying to get 2 out per week). But they are something I can think more about.

That being said at tutorial 10 and 20 the full solution is available which can make it much easier to catch up, or skip tutorials you dont want to watch.

@Tom you guys should add his channel to the tutorial list on the documentation page

Feel free to open a pull request :slight_smile:

@jjagg I will be honest, I mostly used Turtle SVN for years, so GitHub is still very new to me. I will take a look.

right now I just upload the full solution every 10 tutorials (that may change tho).

@Kay Thanks for the shout out

@MrValentine :wink: 2^5 total tutorials so far :slight_smile:

Git takes some getting used to in general, but GitHub makes editing pages a lot easier! If you follow my link, you can

  • make changes
  • briefly describe them with a short explanation in the first textbox below, no need to fill the second one (e.g. Add Batholith to tutorials)
  • click propose changes

GitHub has an official help page for this process:
