Build your own 2D RPGs in Unity!
From retro games to modern hits, 2D RPGs aren’t just enduringly popular – they’re the perfect way to master 2D game development.
When it comes to creating them, Unity is the perfect choice. The engine contains features like sprite management and physics – making it easy to build your 2D game world – along with tools for animation and effects that help bring your game to life.
Plus, it’s highly versatile – you can build your game to PC, mobile, and console without having to rewrite your code or make major changes to your game’s design.

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.
