Getting Started With Your Paper 2D Project

We will gain an understanding of exactly what Paper 2D is, what tools it provides, and how it can help us realize a 2D based game in Unreal Engine.


This course explores Unreal Engine's 2D tools with a look at the Paper 2D plugin, and provides a practical demonstration of how to use them to create a classic 2D platform game.

You will learn how to:

  • Implement the Paper2D plugin and use it to work alongside the core engine.
  • Properly author and import textures into Unreal Engine for best results in a 2D project.
  • Create and configure a 2D player character and player controller.
  • Manipulate Flipbooks, Tilesets and Tilemaps using provided tools.
