I want to become a game developer with Unity, so I picked up C# for a scripting language over JavaScript for other reasons. Anyways I have completed, at least I watched 15 videos of Brackeys C# course and I want to know where I can go deeper, but still be taught well. Any suggestions. By the way learning C# not Unity.

Just make games in Unity. 

I started off making my first game off one of Brackeys tutorials, with no knowledge in C#. I then polished the game, adding more elements to it and features. At last, I uploaded it to Newgrounds, which made a total of 800 views.

I received a lot of reviews as well, with idea’s improvements, and what not. Which lead me to another game. This is my 3rd game, and I already made 80% of it out of pure memory and understanding, no tutorials or anything.

Basically just challenging myself, and searching Unity manuals and google for answers. Every time you use it you grow in it. That’s at least what I did.

Hope that wasn’t too weird. I’m still not an expert, but I’m teaching myself this way.

Good Luck!

No, thank you very much for advice – I guess I’ll just jump right into Unity, however could you give me the name of one of your games

I have just one more question, in your games did you use scripting or no. Or should I just learn Unity and worry about scripting for objects later.

Scripting is the essential part of making a game. You could try to make a game without any programming knowledge but you won’t get far.

I suggest you watch Brackeys’ videos on C#.

hi, i think you should at least make 2 or 3 small games, just by searching throw unity answers and doc. then you should start reading book(+ watching youtube) about c# and unity principles.
and after that, watch a series that creates a game, like:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPV2KyIb3jR42oVBU6K2DIL6Y22Ry9J1c
or …
and then, make a bigger game by yourself, and then read more books, watch more tutorials, make more games, …
And the last thing:
stencyl has visual represention of what unity has, so it really really help you to understand every thing, so i highly recommend using and learning it for a while, untill you understand  every thing, then come back to unity…
