Intro to Game Development using Unity (Cont'd)

Jigsaw member Curtis Himel continues his popular class on game development with Unity, an increasingly-popular game engine used by both indies and large studios. With the engine integrated directly into the development environment, Unity is (relatively) easy to use and allow real-time changes to your game with immediate results. Making a quick game is probably easier than you think! (And probably cheaper too since Unity has a highly-functional free version.) And once your game's done, you won't have to do it again since Unity publishes to nearly every platform available from mobile to Windows to X-Box.

Before the class, you should download and install the free version of Unity game engine 4.2 from http://unity3d.com/unity/download . Also, a mouse with scroll wheel is somewhere between useful and required.

    I think Curtis did a good job with the instructions and managing questions! Curtis, I do agree with the idea that you initially wanted to focus more the Unity instruction with algorithms (although important) being secondary to the class.

    I am new to C# and programming in general, so I'm glad that I can see examples of the finished code with comments and be able to pick it apart and ask questions about how it relates to Unity.

    Sorry if I was a little off yesterday. I showed up after having to put out a couple of unexpected fires instead of the prep I'd wanted to do, and generally felt I wasn't at my best.

    I think it still went well, but next week will be better.

    I may be late -- today is Tax Day for those of us who put it off. Don't wait for me...I'll just scurry down there soon as I can.
