My name is Jason nice to meet you all.


Yo Jason, nice to meet ya. What are you looking forward to doing with blender?


Hey everyone. Taking this class serious and Prof. said to introduce so here I am! lol. Name is Luis. I’m a 23 year old avid gamer/writer/photographer that has decided that I want to master an awesome craft and create something I’ve always aspired to, but thought was impossible. Gotta love the 21st century. I hope to get alot from this. Would love to meet other like minded individuals to create history with potentially. Thank you for reading and giving me some of your time. Hopefully you hear of/from me in the future & vice versa!


Hey Luis, welcome on board and good luck in your studies! I hope you’ll achieve your goals.


hey ra714 glad to see new people like me, welcome and may your games one day be a household name :smiley:


Hello everyone I’m Anthony I am taking the C++ with UE and C# with unity courses, looking into making a FPS game in the future glad to be here and loving the courses and how easy they are.

still new to all of this but ive had slight C++ experience before as well as experience with UE and the CREATION Engine.

thanks for reading! and may your and my own games one day make it somewhere!


Hey everybody! Just recently enrolled in the Unreal Engine developer course in Udemy. I’m not entirely new to Unreal or coding but am looking towards improving and rebuilding my foundation with Unreal and C++.
I’m also studying Game development in college… which if I am to be completely honest, I’ve slacked off and am currently only barely passing. I’m looking to make a complete 180 and get myself fully concentrated and back on track and I believe this course on Udemy can help me do so!

Hope to make everyone’s acquaintance and will be seeing you all in the forums!


Hello everyone, how are you all doing? I am just starting this course and it is my hope to learn C++. I have used it in the past, but as they say if you don’t use it, you will lose it. I haven’t completely forgotten everything, but don’t remember enough to be successful just yet. I ask a lot of questions, hopefully, some one will jump in and help me out. I am a college professor trying to move into a new direction. See you all in the threads!


Hello, and welcome. Im relatively new too and am looking to become a animator. So far everyone has helped wonderfully with what I ask, so I believe you will get what you’re looking for.


Hi Everyone, my name is Jeanne and I am new to this site. I am very interested in programming and love it but have not had time to work on it. In August I had a brain aneurysm burst and subsequently lost my job. I am 50 years old and now I have no job. All of a sudden I have tons of time on my hands. I spend most of my days gaming, trying to rehabilitate my brain into thinking properly again. I have bought several programming classes from Ben and I’m wanting to take them and maybe write my own game. I am hoping that doing some programming will help my brain heal as well. I have always loved programming and feel my most happy while programming so I am sure it will relax and make me feel comfortable. I wanted to say hi to everyone.
Thank you for letting me into the site!


Hi :slight_smile:
My name is Sarah, and I just finished my honours degree in Computer Arts from Abertay University in Scotland last week. Already getting itchy feet from not studying, so here I am. I have made a few games as part of a team before but I only know the art side of the coin, so will be awesome to see it from a programmers side, and gain insight into the full pipeline :smile: .
I specialise in Technical Art in Maya and character rigging, but am doing this course to widen my portfolio. Only ever touched on Python and MEL scripting before, so C++ is very new to me. Really looking forward to getting stuck in :slight_smile:


Hello my name is Bas, i am from the Netherlands and i am hoping to learn to make an actual game with this course. I am in the last year of school and after this year i am going to go study ICT. After that i am hoping to make my own company and have much expercience with the things i want to do there.


HI everyone,

My name is Nate, I’m from Scotland. I’ve recently graduated Uni where I studied a software development degree. I focused on Android and Java, so if anyone ever has any questions or wants tips then please do message!

I’ve been a part of Ben’s courses for a while, and finally getting around to joining this site & starting the RPG course now that I have a bit more free time after work! I’m always keen to meet other programmers and graphics designers so message anytime, I’d love to work together with a few people. :slight_smile:


Hi there everyone! My name is Anthony R. Stewart and I’ve just recently graduated from Full Sail University for a Bachelor of Science degree in Game Design. I’m interested in making FPS and 1on1 fighting games. My short term goal is to hone my skills as a designer to join the team at Treyarch or Namco Bandai USA and provide insightful contributions to the development of their AAA lineup of IP’s. My dream career is to own my own development company and to usher in a line of gamification titles that can be used in public schools. I believe our teachers have a lot on their plate and providing an avenue for learning will help them facilitate the students. I look forward to speaking with you all and I hope that we can build some great working relationships together. :slight_smile:


Hi all,

So full disclosure, I’m a returning member. I previously completed the complete unity course, the certified developer course and obtained my unity certifiction in October last year. However I then lost some focus. Truth is I live in a part of the world that’s to game development careers what camels are to the Amazonian rain forest. I got disheartened. The last few months I’ve been studying web development as that’s largely the career options where we live now.

However I’ve increasingly realised that game development is my passion. So even if it’s only a hobby, I miss it a great deal. I’m now retaking the complete unity course and look forward to working on the RPG course soon!


Hi everyone,

My name’s Hugo and ever since the Unity course first popped up in Kickstarter, I’ve been slowly compiling every other course Ben and his team have been putting out in the hopes that one day I’d come up with my own game. Adulting has seriously hindered my ability to focus on this passion and even when I do start, I get sidetracked or discouraged, but I’m hoping this time is different. I’m going all in with the Unreal course and hopefully that will jump-start the beginning of something great.

I’m a Brooklyn, NY native and I was able to visit the Playcraft Expo in the Microsoft building in Manhattan. A lot of people had very interesting games and some of them were even more impressive because they were done by 1 man teams.

I think where I struggle the most is just the logic behind programming. I begin understanding the the basic concepts and then I’m dumb-founded because I don’t know how to put them into practice, but again, I hope this time around I can really put my best foot forward and finally grasp the concepts that have been plaguing me for ages.

Anyway, good luck to you all and hopefully we’ll interact and help each other out!


Hi Hugo,

If you get stuck at any point just ask, either on the Udemy Q&A if it’s specific to a lecture that you’re having problems with, or, just post here - there are lots of friendlies who will be willing to help you :slight_smile:


Hi Rob,

Hey man, I appreciate it. This community has grown a ton over the years and I’m glad I’m jumping back at it now.
