6 Resources I Used to Learn Game Development



Welcome to a different kind of video in which I share 6 of my favorite resources that I personally used to learn game development. Though this video was made as part of a collaboration, I truly did rely on each of these channels at different points in my game development journey to get me to where I am today. I do my best to include names and links to the specific pieces of content I learned from along the way!

Hope you enjoy, and big thanks to these awesome creators for taking part in the collab.
