Mastering Unity VR Game Dev: Craft Immersive Experiences
Harnessing Unity's XR Toolkit: Custom Interactions, Procedural Generation, Unity's Event System and Audio Management
Want to make Virtual Reality games and apps in Unity?
Keen to expand your skillset to include XR interactions, so you can create engaging XR games and experiences? Then this course is for you!
Unity has added a ton of functionality and features for making VR products, allowing you to bring your ideas to life. And, thanks to the mock headset in the XR interaction toolkit, you can enter play mode on your PC - meaning you don't need a VR headset to create VR games!
In this course, you’ll learn how to harness the power of Unity's XR Interaction Toolkit, along with its Interaction & Locomotion Modules to build immersive XR experiences.
Get hands-on experience designing and implementing custom interactions for UI elements, interactable game objects and hinges, providing users with intuitive and engaging XR interactions.
You’ll get the most from this course if you have some familiarity with the Unity editor, and beginner to intermediate C# knowledge.
You’ll get full lifetime access for a single one-off fee. The creators are qualified and experienced with modelling and coding, so are able to explain complex concepts clearly, as well as entertain along the way.
You’ll also gain access to a course forum where you can discuss topics on a course-wide basis, or down to the individual video. Get plugged into our communities of amazing developers on Facebook (nearly 20k), in our own TA-curated Community (17k views/day), and our student chat group (10k live at any one time).

Hello, I'm Thomas - thrilled to make your acquaintance.
In the mid-90s, I discovered my passion for coding and technology while working on automation and teleconferencing systems. These early experiences sparked my interest in the ever-evolving world of tech.
However, in 1999, I decided to take a different path and pursue my dreams of racing mountain bikes. I ventured into the world of mountain biking and later transitioned into becoming a nationally ranked Ultra Runner in the US by 2008. My journey in the world of extreme sports was an exhilarating adventure.
Following a life-changing accident, I found myself reconnecting with my tech roots. I realized that my childhood dream of creating games was still very much alive within me. I jumped back into the world of technology and discovered the captivating world of game development with the Unity Engine.
Now, I'm living my dream by combining my love for tech and my passion for game creation. Unity's creative possibilities allow me to bring my imagination to life through gaming experiences.
As an instructor at GameDev.tv, I'm excited to share my knowledge and experiences with all of you. Together, let's explore the wonders of game development and craft extraordinary interactive worlds that captivate players worldwide!
