Game and Level Design Tutorials

Check out our range of game design courses hosted by CRYENGINE experts.

Our CRYENGINE YouTube channel is home to a huge range of learning materials designed to help you master every element of game design, development, and our engine. Whether you’re entirely new to CRYENGINE, or a veteran looking for information about a certain topic, we have got you covered. In addition to a range of videos covering specific areas, we have also curated a series of playlists based around different disciplines and themes, and today we’re focusing on our Game and Level Design series.

Our Game and Level Design playlist is home to 40 videos covering a wide range of topics. Recently added to the playlist is our Creative Lighting tutorial, hosted by CRYENGINE Learning Manager Brian Dilg, which discusses both the technical aspects of lighting in the engine and how light can play a vital role in game design by, for instance, guiding players through a level or alerting them to threats of objectives. There is also a substantial case study on Homebound, a CRYENGINE Global Game Jam entry which you can download from the CRYENGINE Marketplace, which shows how the game was created and covers the game’s design with insight from Crytek staff.

The playlist also includes a comprehensive guide to the Dynamic Response System, which shows you how to execute various events through dialogue and overall gameplay with the DRS tool. You’ll also find a tutorial which demonstrates how you can create a rope bridge, a walkthrough teaching you everything you need to know about how to set up a character in CRYENGINE and much more. Whether you want to work through the playlist from start to finish, or simply wish to browse through a range of guides to discover a topic you’d like to brush up on, you’re sure to find a video that can help you up your dev game.

Don’t forget to subscribe to the CRYENGINE YouTube channel to get all the latest learning materials from Crytek. And if you can’t find the topic you’re looking for, let us know on the forum, via Facebook and Twitter, or on our official CRYENGINE Discord channel.
