There is a course called Learn to Code from Zero on the site that is better for complete beginners but having already known a little Python and C# but nothing of Godot or GDScript this was the better start. The pace and singular mission help round out the overall understanding of Godot as a tool. If you are a beginner and have just finished Learn to Code from Zero it is a great second step.
Great job GDQuest. I bought this course during Black Friday and finally came around to try it out. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning game development using Godot. This course uses 3.5 and is an excellent intro to Godot's (GDScript) language. GDQuest has a youtube channel with the first parts of this extended course. You should check it out first before buying. In addition, the instructor is great at explaining why and how to program a basic platformer. I learned much and will continue my game dev journey with Code a 2D Platform Game Character with Godot (indie version). Thank you GDQuest.
Which version of Godot did you try to use? This course is fully compatible with Godot 3.5, which is the latest version that was just released.
Did you try to follow the course with Godot 4? Because if so, it's still in alpha and very far from release, which is why none of our courses cover Godot 4. It's still going to change a lot by the final release.
If you had trouble with Godot 3.5, could you please let us know exactly with which code? I didn't get any support requests pointing out code that didn't work, but whenever you get stuck or have an issue, we're here to help. You can use the questions below every lesson,
This course worth the price !
If you know nothing about Godot and you want to learn this awesome game engine, take this course!
This course is for beginners as well for people having programming knowledge.
You will learn basics of Godot and GDScript, but according to Best Practices, and this is really important !
Besides, i rework this project from scratch by using C# instead of GDScript. For who is interested in translating GDScript to C#, you can take a look to at this Github Repository.
The courses are amazing I am starting over again but I know I will do it this time, I've figured out my goals and are going to post devlogs of a game I am making while using this course and I will difinetly be giving this course a shoutout in every video and every course I use!
I've done some courses in the past regarding game development and specially for the GameMaker engine and Unity.
After watching some videos and youtubers going from GameMaker to Godot I decided to give a go to Godot. I did my research and conclude that the best platform to learn Godot is the one from GDQuest.
I believe that they are working in Godot since day one. One of the benefits is that they keep the code updated for newer versions of Godot.
At some points GODOT version changes or there are new solutions for a game mechanic. A new video comes and you can be kinda lost because the code changed in relation with what you've done. Well this can be frustrating but at the same time you will learn how to think and find solutions.
Very good first entry into Godot. At some points it can be confusing but definitely deserves 5 stars.
