Unreal Engine ITECOM students games 2021

This year, 4 games were developed with Unreal Engine 4

This year again, several good prototypes of games made with Unreal Engine by the students of the ITECOM campus of Nice in 3D Animation section.

These games highlighting their skills as 3D artists Maya and Substance Painter.

A big congratulations to them who didn’t know about Unreal Engine and programming until 6 months ago and worked very well in teams.

UNREAL Engine teaching

Video game programming teaching in schools and to individuals

Besides my interest in creating 3D environments with Terragen, I’m also passionate about Unreal Engine, the famous 3D video game engine.

As such, I offer complete teachings on video game programming in schools in the South-East of France.

I teach my students how to create games with Unreal Engine from the objects they model in Maya, 3ds max or Blender.

They learn to transform simple static objects into dynamic game elements.

As these students do not have a programmer profile, but rather a 3D artist profile, I teach them the graphic programming available in Unreal (Blueprints).

Create mini video games as exercices

Among the many exercises I give them, from time to time there are mini projects to be done consisting in creating complete mini-games (with menus, character management, dynamic elements such as projectiles, sound, saving scores…) in a time frame of one to two weeks.

Here are a few examples of mini games to do, which allow, despite their apparent simplicity, to take Unreal Engine in hand.

These games running on Windows 10 64 bits are available on itchio.io or gamejolt platforms for free : https://luc-bianco.itch.io/ or https://gamejolt.com/@lucbianco

Unreal Engine students games

After a few months of training, my students are able to create elaborate games with Unreal Engine, as shown by these projects for the 2019 and 2020 classes.
