Hope you guys like the video!

There is a poll towards the end on what programming language you would like me to teach - JavaScript or C#. Both languages can be used to make awesome games. JavaScript is considered easier to learn for complete beginners however Unity has shifted heavily towards C# lately (their premade assets, documentation and tutorials is all in C#). C# is my personal favorite but I started in JavaScript so things can quickly change! I will leave the decision to you guys!

Oh and thanks for all the support on the last video, it makes me excited to bring you more! Remember to share the video if you think it's worth it ;)

I'll see you in the next one!

Thank you for not bothering us with 20 minutes of "In this tutorial you'll learn this and that...", but cutting directly to the chase! Great tutorial!

When you realize most top free mobile games take around 10 hours on unity to finish.

Hello Brackeys, I had a question for you : If I want to start this course do I need to know how to program on C# or are you going to teach us this language through these series. And last of all, I saw your other videos and it seems like you do quite a bit of programming so I wanted to know if you have a series about programming to be able to program like you do.
Anyway, thanks for the vids!!
