Learn Unreal Engine by making games

If you've ever wanted to bring your artistic vision to life in the video game medium, then this might be your opportunity. You'll have to act fast, though.

The AA Picks team is on the prowl for things we think our readers will value. If we make an affiliate partnership to reduce the costs of purchases, then we may see a share of revenue.

A few weeks ago, we discovered Ben Tristem, a online coding instructor whose approach to teaching involves walking students through making games. We thought that this was an interesting method that bypassed much of the dull rigmarole that usually comes part and parcel with learning how to program.

It seems our readers did as well, so we looked around to see what else Tristem had to offer.

Although that previous course focused on building games using Unity, Tristem also teaches another course that focuses on Unreal Engine. This could be a good option for potential developers who are looking on building more robust, triple-A titles.

It’s an ambitious goal, but Tristem walks through game development at the same gradual pace as his previous course. Since you get lifetime access to all the course materials, you can walk through all 240 lectures and the 40 hours of video content at your own pace.

Tristem notes that Unreal Engine makes a good option for the more artistically inclined game maker, as it offers a bevy of tools that enable you to unleash your creativity in the gaming medium.

It’s a smaller course than his Unity one, with only 23,400 students currently enrolled (compared to over 100,000), but this may be due it attracting more ambitious students. It currently boasts a 4.7-star score from over 4,300 ratings.

Normally the course runs $195, but right now Tristem is running the same offer on this one as he is on the Unity course: 90% off. That means you get the whole kit-and-kaboodle for just $19, but even at that price, Tristem will give you your money back if you decide the course isn’t for you within 30 days.
