Instructor Details

Hey Guys! My name is Greg Wondra, I am a 12 year video game design veteran and 3 year game design instructor. I have worked for companies such as 2K Sports, KingsIsle Entertainment, and Nickelodeon. I'm proud to have had the honor of working on the games listed below: - Wizard 101 (PC) - Lost Planet 3 (360, PS3, PC) - MonkeyQuest (PC) - Sports Champions (PS3) - Major League Baseball 2K5, 2K6, 2K7, 2K8 (various consoles) - SpongeBob Moves In (Mobile) - Grub Guardian (Mobile) Working in the gaming industry has been a dream come true and has provided me with rare lifetime opportunities. Over the course of my career I've been fortunate enough to have directed the likes of LeBron James and Derek Jeter in motion capture sessions. Additionally, one of the projects I was involved with (Sports Champions) was selected to be the game bundled in with Sony's Playstation Move hardware when it was initially released. Since 2016 I've worked as the Video Game Design instructor at the Regional Occupational Center in Bakersfield, CA where I teach high school seniors a full year course on game design using Unreal Engine 4.

    I’m through approximately 80% of the course, and would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to learn how to translate game ideas into a functional game using the Unreal Engine 4 blueprint framework. Greg does a fantastic job explaining concepts and reasoning behind his design. He answers questions rapidly and enthusiastically and is very encouraging when students ask about extensions and alternate ways to accomplish design tasks, going so far as to mock up blueprint design ideas in the answers to the questions. By the end of the course I was jumping ahead and trying to guess how Greg was going to approach a task, and more often than not (especially the high scores part) he had more efficient or easier ways of doing things than I came up with on my own. You can tell Greg has a lot of experience finding eminently teachable ways of accomplishing goals. One problem with most YouTube tutorials out there is while they do achieve a working result, we as the viewer are often left wondering why one specific way of doing things was chosen and don’t get to benefit from the explanation why, which can often only come by asking the author, which you can do here, and in Greg’s case he always answers. Other little things include explaining keyboard shortcuts and how to find various things in the editor multiple times, so if you happen to miss the first way to bind an event to a button or change a variable name, for example, you’ll be exposed to it again and again until you could do it in your sleep. Thanks for a great course, Greg!

    Very focused course, quick and to the point most of the time. I appreciate that the videos for beginners were labeled so you could skip them if you didn’t need them. I got a great sense of accomplishment from completing a full game after doing so many other half games. cons you went through the actions of doing a lot of things without description of why until after the fact. Also as a programmer I felt dirty with the amount of duplication of code (blueprint) and I noticed some things were done inefficiently in the way we got some things done (could copy and paste more properties in UMG, and use alignment props of the slot properties instead of entering magic numbers to center items). However I recognize that doing things with less code repetition could be confusing to some beginners /shrug

    Good explanations, easy to follow along. Goes in depth on why he makes his decisions and what he wants to achieve. Project is fully beginning to end. Goes over all the aspects we come across and puts in effort/extra features to make the game more appealing. Which gives an insight into what real game development is.

    Excellent training. My only regret is that you didn’t fix the problem with the eye that is down there when you move in axis x negative, I tried several things without result, but I’m an ultra beginner in EU4. I hope you will do more training on the same principle, but more in the Gallaga style:) I apologize in advance for my poor English, I use an automatic translator. Alain

    I really appreciate how much Greg explained what he was doing and how it was all working together. He was helpful via e mail for any troubles I had, and always had an upbeat tone, which if you’re going to listen to 26 hours worth of material, is a lifesaver.

    He screws around too much doing things that he does not explain as he does them, saving them for later. That’s annoying. He makes a lot of time wasting mistakes. Also, he is doing this all in a hacky way, as opposed to doing it properly, like not having things properly aligned, and using the 3p character instead of creating the character from scratch.

    So far most of it is just setting up with no scripting (which is the part Im most interested in). Also, I dont have the leaf model used for the orange/ cherry and he never said where to get it.

    Generally speaking, it’s a good intro into the Unreal Editor. But the teacher misses some basic understanding which leads to wrongly explanations. It’s a bit surprising as it are things one would expect to understand from someone experienced with game development. Also, he’s too hasty or casual in some explanations causing him to name things wrongly while he showed before knowing correctly what they are.

    Greg is an excellent instructor and communicator, and the course materials are excellent. He spoke quickly and clearly and was able to cover a huge amount of material, while still attending to every detail. He had also done a lot of calculations off screen, so we didn’t have to sit through him winging it while building the assets, which is greatly appreciated. He also wiggles the mouse a lot, so you can tell what he’s doing in that overly complex editor a tiny detail, but it helped the students, and he makes sure to do it every single time. I have worked as a professional software developer for 30+ years, including going to countless training sessions and seminars, so I know what I’m talking about when I say: This course is the best I have ever seen.

    Great course that full takes you step by step into making a full game. It covers many topics and goes into them in detail. I would recommend to anyone looking to start a solid foundation into using UE4 and Blueprint scripting.

    Some blueprint implementations presented here are simply hair raising to the experienced programmer, but that’s because Greg is not a programmer. Where this course really shines is that it shows you what creating a game is really about, a millions of menus and widgets etc., and more important, how to put it all together to make a complete game. Really really enjoyed this course, I was able to learn so much from this, awesome experience. Thanks for putting this up!

    Don’t be fooled by PacMan. For one it’s one of the legends that started the game industry. If you don’t know how to program them then how can you do anything else? It also has all of the basics for any game out there. It looks simple but it has so many mechanics hidden under the screen. And the course lecture is top notch. If you want to learn to make a game in UE4 there probably is no better place to start.

    A great course, went over many topics and final result is pretty awesome. The Instructor is very responsive in the Q&A section and I found answers to most of my questions there. By the end I definitely had a firm grasp of the concepts, and was able to add my own modifications to the game to really make it my own. Thanks Greg for this amazing course!

    Bit early to tell yet, but looks promising. I wanted a complete n00b course to walk me through the bewildering array of options in UE to make a simple arcade game so this is a good match.

Greg’s teaching delivery is great and the course is well suited to anyone looking to get started UE4 with a familiar end game (with some polished bits) as the result. Would definitely recommend and I can’t wait to start looking to put together some of the projects I’ve shelved on other SDKs. Overall Great course and I would certainly consider buying more courses from this tutor. Cheers Greg!

    Mentor is really good. He explains the whole process in such micro details and repeats himself so many times that your brain starts to memorize it automatically. Course highly recommend for beginners.
