In week one, prepare to build your game by learning the fundamentals of C++ and Blueprints, two essential tools for development with Unreal Engine. Implement game mechanics and build coding skills to become an indispensable asset to your team. Finish the week by diving into game design theory, learning how to create themed experiences, crafting compelling dynamics, and scoping your projects.

During week two, dig into your role and get into the full swing of game production by launching an indie studio with your team. Work together to create your combined vision and organize your tasks in order to collaborate effectively. Add new coding skills tailored to your project and prepare to show off your work at the end of the week.
