Learn and enhance your knowledge of C# and Object-Oriented programming while creating your very own text-based RPG game. This course covers key-aspects of OOP — from classes, inheritance, polymorphism, and encapsulation to interfaces and delegates.

What you’ll learn

By the end of this course, you’ll have a much deeper understanding of OOP and how it can be used to make your own games with Unity and C#. Your goal will be to create a text-based RPG while also learning about

  • Classes and objects and how/when to use inheritance
  • Encapsulation and how it relates to classes, public and private methods, and variables
  • Polymorphism, the difference between overriding and overloading and when to use each to your own advantage
  • C# Data Structures – lists, dictionaries, and more
  • Lambda functions
  • Namespaces, events, and much more!

Game features
  • Guide your character through a randomly generated dungeon filled with dragons and treasures
  • Fight powerful monsters to gain their items and gold
  • Too scared to confront what you stumbled upon? Flee the premises, but be aware that this option is not without consequences!
  • Find and use powerful relics
  • Find and open in-game treasure chests. Or not, who knows what’s in there?
  • Increase your current stats — energy, attack, defense — and decide what to do when encountering an opponent by accounting for their own strengths and weaknesses
  • The sky’s the limit. You can create your own story, enemies, and items. Imagine the possibilities!
