Our new course to learn to design 2D visual effects for games in Godot is out!

This tutorial series focuses on the use of particle systems and related effects. It will teach you essential techniques to design effects such as explosions, lasers, or background animation.

What you will learn

In this series, you will learn to:

  • Design advanced effects with Godot’s particle systems.

You should know how to work with Godot’s editor and have GDScript foundations for some lessons, such as the laser.
