There aren't many college programs that will teach you how to make flesh-eating zombies play tennis. But who needs decades of debt from college when you can learn game design at home?

Anyone with an interest in building innovative games can pick up the necessary technical knowledge through the game design course bundle — and only pay what they want for it. The bundle brings together over 115 hours of video tutorials, covering the visual, technical, and user experience aspects of authoring your own titles.

The first course is Become a Unity 3D Power User Course, a comprehensive guide to building games with a popular engine. Students need no coding experience, as the videos teach scripting from scratch. You’ll also learn about animation, modeling, rigging, sound and level design, particle effects, and compiling.

Next up is the Professional Video Game Art School Course, which offers 83 hours of content on designing in-game elements in 2D and 3D. Working from the basics of traditional drawing, the videos look at using 3ds Max and game layouts, along with additional content on the visual effects introduced in the first course.

The bundle finishes up with the Engage Your Customers w/ Gamification Course, which helps aspiring developers keep players hooked, and the Learn To Craft Hand-Painted Textures Course, which shows you how to make realistic surfaces for game objects.

To get this lineup, you simply name your price on the last two courses at the Daily Dot Store, beating the average price paid to unlock the full bundle. The courses are usually worth $796 put together, so grab this deal while you can!
