Download the project files and save it in a known location. Launch Unity and log in to your Unity account if you have not already done so. Then you should see a 'open' option, click on that and choose the project files directory which contains the 'How to Make a Video Game' folder. Click 'Ok' and the project should load up into Unity.

Hope this helps.

You would need to unzip the downloaded file, path directory should be 'C:\yourdirectory\howtomakeavideogame\How to Make a Video Game' when opening it in Unity.

Sorry forgot to add this detail.
