Develop fundamental C++ programming skills by building your own RPG!
In this course, you will create a text-based, dungeon crawler from scratch using only C++, an in-demand language used in many fields of development. As you build this game, not only will you gain a better understanding of how to apply game coding principles with C++, but also how its task efficiency makes it suitable for high-end game projects. By the end of this course, you will have the skills needed to start pursuing your own game projects (regardless of genre), along with highly transferrable skills that can be applied to other types of C++ based programs.
You will learn how to:
- Create classes to store object information and data
- Set up a player character that can move and explore your dungeon
- Implement enemies and fighting mechanics to challenge players
- Add items and looting mechanics to reward players
- Control the game flow with game over conditions and stats
- Build dungeons and rooms based on class information
… 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.
