Game Development I is the first course of course of Mastery Coding’s Game and App Certification Pathway, designed to give 9th-12th grade students the coding and game design skills to earn Unity certifications and pursue career pathways in computer science and coding.

Game Development I teaches C# coding and game design with the Unity 3D Engine using a project-based approach. Beginning with little to no coding experience, students build their knowledge of C# and Unity by creating multiple full-featured games combining 3D models, animation, audio files and scripts. Upon course completion, students will have the ability to create a 3D game from scratch on their own and earn industry-recognized certifications.
