Anyone wanna help me learn the basics?

Hey My name is Kyle and I am 16 years old. I really want to create a game on unreal engine but I do not know how or where to start and I was wondering if anyone wants to add me on skype or TS or discord so that they can just teach me the basics. I won’t take up much of your time and it’ll be a fun experience to get to know each other.

A good start is to take a look at the official Unreal Engine 4 tutorials which you can find here -> Unreal Engine - YouTube
Otherwise you could join one of the skype groups -> https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?224-Skype-Group-for-Developers-and-Newbies :slight_smile:

Yeah, there’s a ton of materials you can find online to start. Youtube videos as @fighter5347 mentioned are probably the most comfortable place to start. You can get your questions answered here or on AnswerHub. So make yourself at home! Even today with all materials and tools and courses most will come out of your own will to study and dig the information up.

I’d say start with simple game series, such as these:

Twin-Stick shooter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pmPb_TWG-8&list=PLZlv_N0_O1gb5sdygbSiEU7hb0eomNLdq
Endless Runner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yS-yQfo0lc0&list=PLZlv_N0_O1gbY4FN8pZuEPVC9PzQThNn1

Simple and easy games to understand. Once you get the hang of it, try reproducing a simple game like Flappy Bird.
