My ‘Beginners Guide to 3D Web Game Development with Three.JS’ is just $9.99 for the next few days. It’s a great introduction to an amazing library even if you aren’t interested in the game side.
The course builds on the skills you learn. The next game is a shooter and you learn how to animate a player avatar, how to control NPC characters so they patrol on a random path using navigation meshes and path-finding. You’ll learn how to control the avatar with a keyboard or gamepad and on a mobile using an on-screen controller. You’ll learn how to fire bullets at the enemy and add AI to the NPCs so they fire back. All the key ingredients of a shooter game.
The last game uses the physics engine CannonJS to control the motion of balls in an Eight-ball Pool game.
Along the way you’ll learn to use the 3D application program Blender to prepare your 3D assets for the games you develop.
