Discover how to build strategy games using the free Godot game engine!
From RTS games to complex city-builders, strategy games are a unique genre that task players with putting a lot of thought into their actions. Likewise, this gives developers plenty of opportunities for growth both in terms of their creative expression and the strategy mechanics they build for their projects.
Through this course, you’ll develop a 2D city-building game with a theme of colony building on Mars. You’ll learn a variety of useful mechanics for strategy games as a whole, including resource management for building placement, turn-based gameplay flow, UI rendering for resources, and much more.
No matter the type of strategy game interests you, these lessons will help you learn core strategy mechanics you can apply and expand for your future projects.
This course assumes basic familiarity with Godot.
You will learn how to:
- Create grid-based, tilemap systems
- Implement restrictions for building placement
- Add different kinds of buildings
- Calculate resources based on buildings placed
- Manage resources through turn-based gameplay
- Display resource information via UI components
… 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.
