For the entire Make Your Own Game series you’ll be working on creating a wall jumper game called GLTCH. This game looks amazing! Our talented artist Dani, created some stunning graphics for the series.

Throughout each lesson you’ll learn inside tips and tricks to creating games like some of the top game publishers. This course was designed to not only teach you how to create a game but how to really use Buildbox to make a successful game, that’s worthy of topping the charts.
