Hiro Mashima took on the challenge of creating an original 3D game with Unreal Engine 5. He has been releasing YouTube videos chronicling his game development since September 2022.
There are already two seasons’ worth of videos about his game development, and the third season began in November. New episodes are released every Wednesday.
Season 1 saw Mashima learning to create 3D environments and levels using the game engine, while Season 2 had the artist creating original 3D characters using the computer graphics software Blender.
In this new season, he is looming towards wrapping up the development of his game. Only the first four episodes of the third season have Japanese subtitles so far. However, the first two seasons are on the Kodansha Creators’ Lab YouTube channel with English subtitles.
