Extra Credits is a channel centered around explaining the fundamentals of how games are built and work, with a 2D animated cartoonish style to keep things interesting. They have recently diversified into other topics such as history, mythology, and even science fiction.
However, the bulk of their content and their most popular videos are focused around gaming. If you’re an aspiring game developer looking for ways to make your creation better, this is the channel for you. Every video is packed with information that is meticulously researched, and narrated in a casual yet highly concise manner.
Want to learn about good writing and how it lets the player form an intimate bond with the game’s protagonist? Check out their playlist on writing for games. Or perhaps you want to create your first game and don’t know where to start. Worry not, there’s a playlist for that too.
Some of Extra Credit’s staff are former game developers and proud geeks, so they know exactly what they’re talking about when it comes to games.
