About This Class

Let former professional game developer Albert Chen show you how to quickly create a 3D game level using the free but powerful Unreal Engine 4.  He will guide you through installing and using Unreal Engine and then walk you through the level design process.  By the end of the class, you will be able to create a simple 3D game level that you can show off to friends and family.  This class assumes that you are comfortable using a Windows PC or Mac and that your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements to run Unreal Engine 4.  No prior game design, programming or 3D modeling experience is required.
