Want to make 2D games with Unity3D?! No you are not out of your mind. This is one of the most commonly asked questions and we are here to end this discussion once and for all and show you how it can be done!
We'll have Tony Patino from Recursive Frog and Ryan Nohr from Stone Monkey Studios show us how they are using Unity, with and without plugins, to create their 2D games - Hug Monster (Android) and City Quest (iOS/Andoird tablets)
Hug Monster2D Tool Kit + nGUI + Virtual Controls Suite
City QuestCustom 2D scripts + editor scripts
Two presentations in one night, what more can you ask for?! ;)
I'm hoping this is fairly in depth. 2D art yeah, but also collisions/physics come to mind right away as a reason I backed off of doing more research into using Unity for 2D. Would be great to get enlightened. :)
Unity 3D is a great game engine for creating 2D and 3D video games and interactive digital content on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and consoles. This group is created to connect Unity engine users, exchange ideas, discover best practices and new tools/plugins, and help each other grow and learn more about Unity.
