There is no better way to learn CRYENGINE V core game development principles than by building a working game. Our free “Flappy Boid” beginner’s course takes you from zero to a finished game that includes basic animation, physics, lighting, audio, modeling and texturing, game mechanics, particle effects, collisions, score keeping, a basic UI, and exporting to a finished stand-alone build.

No prior game development experience is needed, although you should have a basic familiarity with the CRYENGINE Editor, which you can acquire quickly by reading our Designer Quick Start.

Techniques and tools you’ll learn in this course include how to:

  1. Navigate the CRYENGINE interface, Editor, and tool set
  2. Work with entities, including rigid bodies, cameras, AI tag points, brushes, and Designer objects
  3. Create and edit materials and textures
  4. Design and build a level
  5. Use the Environment Editor and Level Settings to control sunlight, time of day, latitude and longitude, clouds, wind, shadows, global illumination, and ocean parameters
  6. Use the Level Explorer to manage, freeze, hide, rename, link and assign entities to layers
  7. Control the position, movement, scale, and rotation of entities through Flow Graph
  8. Precisely position and modify objects using snap and alignment tools
  9. Add, move, and control cameras and their properties; control the player’s view
  10. Use physics for realistic movement; selectively deactivate physics on specific entities
  11. Detect and react to collisions between entities
  12. Use and trigger particle effects
  13. Script and control audio events and ambience
  14. Script game mechanics and scorekeeping using Flow Graph
  15. Use assets and functionality from the free GameSDK (Software Development Kit)
  16. Modify and selectively disable GameSDK functionality
  17. Export a finished game to a stand-alone executable and test it
  18. Use Console Variables to control the Editor and test environments

This asset includes the complete course workbook in PDF format, all assets required to build the game (models, materials, and audio), and high resolution screen shots of game mechanics. This course requires CRYENGINE 5.5 and GameSDK.

This course will also be released soon as a series of video tutorials. Check our Tutorials page for updates.

Why Schematyc NO

Flowgraph?!?!! I love Schematyc , Why Schematyc NO? I am wonder!!!!

Well, why, why FG ?! We want to see educational projects on Schematyc! FlowGraph has long since outlived itself and is obsolete and all that he could provide us, he gave a long time ago. With the 3rd generation of the engine, we are working on it, enough! It's time to let in new technologies and opportunities. Crytek, we are waiting for the documentation and projects from Schematyc!

Good

Of course i'd like to see that Crytek lay flowgraph down and improved Schematyc. But, if it is not possible for now, change its ui at least.(It probably'd be bad decision) (I should mention that, i did not downloaded this content yet. The rate i gave is not reflecting content's quality.)

Flowgraph

seriously? why Flowgraph and not Schematyc or C# that is what we want to see in a sample/ beginner’s course... Flowgraph will soon be history so why bother to learn this? Make a new sample game and then with Schematyc and / or C# and make the tut more user friendly because even I had difficulties following the steps and I use CE for years! Don't get me wrong I love CE and love the 5.5 update but this is ridiculous really...

Great Introduction

Good place to start if you are new to CryEngine and you are serious about learning the basics of the engine. Don't listen to the comments complaining about 'why flowgraph and not schematic or C#' - these are people who clearly know little about the engine. The documentation that covers Schematic explains that schematic is not a replacement for flowgraph and that it has a different purpose - read the documentation - I'm posting it here since people don't seem to bother to read before talking trash: http://docs.cryengine.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=29450149 Also, C# is in an very early implementation and needs more work, although I would love for them to add similar tutorials for C# in the future. Finally, they are working on Schematic 2.0, and so if the course covered schematic, it would be outdated already, since the current version of schematic is already old and will be replaced. You can do it it flowgraph, so why not? I happen to like flowgraph. Also, just because something is old, does not mean it is obsolete - many systems you use daily in other engines are old systems that have simply been updated or polished (given a face-lift).
