Have you always wanted to get started in game development? Here’s your chance to learn how to create games from the ground up, using C++ and DirectX. Learn about the game loop, input detection, applying basic shaders, state management, and more. With these skills, you’ll be building the engine, not just the game—and you’ll up-level your employability options with AAA companies at the same time.
