Build a 3D micro-RPG controlled by your mouse.
RPGs have a huge range in the complexity and difference of their mechanics. However, many start with the same basic principles of requiring some method for players to move their character. Using mouse input is not only a popular way to handle movement in RPGs, but also one with accessibility and cross-platform benefits.
You’ll explore the foundations of 3D RPG development by creating a simple micro-project where players can move around and attack enemies by clicking. You’ll learn not only about dealing with mouse-based user input, but explore key mechanics such as automatic terrain navigation, combat damage, and projectile weapons.
No matter what kind of RPG you want to make in the future, these baseline mechanics will provide you with the fundamental knowledge you need to expand and build more complex 3D mechanics in the future.
This course assumes basic familiarity with C# and Unity.
You will learn how to:
- Code players and enemies efficiently
- Detect and process click events
- Use Unity’s NavMesh for auto navigation
- Make State Machines for enemy AI
- Implement basic combat and RPG UIs
- Use Cinemachine to follow players
… and more!

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
