Stop worrying about off-looking UI in your games.
Discover how you can implement pixel-perfect components.


You’ve just created a working prototype for your game but there is still that nagging feeling: will the game’s UI impress your players?

Maybe you believed that the implementation of aesthetically pleasing UI elements would take a significant amount of time. Consequently, you compromised and went with the default theme. It is also conceivable that you were aware of how to alter the appearance of particular components, yet you felt hesitant to devote the effort to completely skin the set, for fear of having to modify the entire look if a different aesthetic is chosen in the end.

In this Udemy course, you’ll unlock the power of thematic UI design in the world of game development.


In this course, you’ll start off by skinning the most used UI elements in Godot Engine such as Button, Label, CheckBox, etc. Then, you’ll move on to implementing more and more complex UI examples. Here is a short list of benefits you’ll experience by the end of this course:

  • Taking advantage of themes

    Using themes in lieu of individually skinning components is super helpful since swapping themes will let you instantly change how your UI looks.

  • Composing advanced UI components

    There will come a moment where you’ll have to combine basic components to craft more complex ones. Using themes will help you attain consistency regardless of how sophisticated your components are.

  • Crafting completely new UI components

    Although Godot Engine has quite a few UI components, sometimes you need to create something new. You’ll discover how to take existing components and stretch their lifetime.

Working with UI elements shouldn’t be an ordeal

And it won’t be if you follow the instructions in this course. Hopefully, it’ll give the right amount of insight you can experiment on your own and take your UI components to the next level!
