3D Buzz was a community website for game developers and designers, and users interested in becoming developers or designers. Apart from the community aspect, it was home to a huge number of tutorials related to graphics design, game development, and everything associated with it.
While the site itself is no longer available, its legacy continues as a torrent has been created that lets anyone download over 200 Gigabytes of development and design tutorials and courses.
To grab the torrent, head over to the official 3D Buzz website to download it. There you will find a list of included courses.
To give you a quick summary of what is provided:
These are just some of the courses available. Most torrent clients come with functionality to download only some of the included files and not all of them; this may be useful if you are only interested in specific courses and not the entire bundle. All files in the torrent are easily identifiable by their name. You may also look up the description on the 3D Buzz website to find out more about a particular tutorial.
Note that some courses date back a couple of years and that certain technologies may have advanced since then. Still, everything is free and a lot is still useful for new and beginning game developers and designers.
The tutorials that I downloaded and looked at were all video tutorials in mp4 format. All video players should play these without any issues.
The 3D Buzz collection of game and design tutorials provides new and beginning developers and designers with a treasure trove of content. While some of the tutorials are too old to be of much use, others have aged well and may still be very useful.
Now you: do you have a favorite resource for design or development tutorials?Advertisement
