Do you want to learn how to build a game - for free? Enroll today in this 30-minute course on Construct 3.
Hi, I'm John Bura, the creator of this course. I've been making games since 1997, and the new game engine Construct 3 is my favorite to use of all time. It's so easy, quick, and intuitive - I can't wait to teach you all about it in this course.
Construct 3 is a game engine you can use entirely in your web browser to make games without coding. Once you use Construct 3, you'll never go back.
And the engine - like this course - is absolutely free. While you can upgrade to paid versions, we use the free edition in this course.
You will learn how to:
- Create a dynamic player
- Keep track of the game score
- Spawn collectibles
- Change colors
- Set up the game scene
- Create a clean, minimalist aesthetic
Please note that I recorded this on a Mac, but you can use a PC.
Who this course is for
- absolute beginners who love to play games but want to make the jump from consumer to creator
- beginners who enjoy making simple games and want to diversify their portfolio
- intermediates with programming experience who want to add the Construct 3 software to their toolbox
- advanced developers who want a refresher on the fundamentals of the creative process or of the Construct game engine
What this course is not
This is not a course where we stuff you with theoretical knowledge. Mammoth Interactive tutorials are over-the-shoulder style, where you see your instructor's screen.
We believe the best way to learn is by doing rather than hearing lectures. As such, you get to see how an expert makes projects. The idea is that you follow along in real time with your instructor.
However, if you do want to passively listen to the lectures, you can. The content is downloadable on the Teachable iOS app.
You can do it
No experience is necessary to take this course. Even if you’ve never coded before, you can join us.
One of the best features is that you can watch the tutorials at any speed you want. This means you can speed up or slow down the video if you want to.
By enrolling, you learn practical, employable skills immediately. You can put the game you make in this course in your portfolio!
A hands-on approach
In this course, you learn by doing. We at Mammoth Interactive don't just teach you theory - we make projects you can put directly into your portfolio.

“I really like the approach the presenter takes – not just the technical details, but also the very human, personal development information and recommendations he provides.”
“The instructor is very good at teaching. He teaches at a great pace and covers anything a beginner would need to understand (every little detail). I am already learning a lot and I just started yesterday."
