Zenva’s RPG Academy is the world’s first on-demand curriculum designed to teach ANYONE how to code and build impressive 2D and 3D RPGs with Unity.
Learn to craft your own enticing and dangerous worlds with Unity, a free and highly popular game development engine, and discover just how rewarding it can be to see your players explore the adventures that you’ve created for them.
Learn with fully authorized courses
This curriculum has been extensively reviewed and authorized by Unity Technologies, the company behind the Unity Engine.
As an Authorized Learning Partner, our approved Unity courses satisfy the highest standards in terms of both quality and relevancy.
If you’ve never coded before your journey will begin with a module that introduces Unity and the C# programming language by teaching you how to build a simple action RPG.
Once you have a solid foundation of Unity and C#, we’ll present you with an assortment of modules covering different RPG mechanics such as battles, map exploration, non-player characters (NPCs) and crafting systems.
Finally, you’ll progress the more advanced modules, which cover topics such as artificial intelligence, state machines and C# programming patterns.

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.
– Monica Mancusi
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.
