An introduction to Unity3D for easy game development
Unity3D Game Development Tutorial: Want to create a game for Android? Chances are that it’s a lot simpler than you probably imagine, you just need to find the right tools. Unity3D is just such a tool that gives you access to a professional-grade game engine and streamlines the development process enough to be suitable for complete beginners. In fact, Unity3D is so beginner-friendly that you can create a pretty decent game with barely any coding experience.
Some people will take the stance that using a tool like Unity is ‘cheating’ or that it isn’t ‘proper coding’. But does that really matter? Blockbuster apps like Lara Croft GO, Thomas Was Alone, Shadowgun, Temple Run, Bad Piggies, The Room and even Deus Ex: The Fall were all built using Unity and they’ve gone on to enjoy critical and commercial success. Using Unity is much easier than making a game from scratch or using a more complex engine and as these games show, it really doesn’t limit what’s possible. So why would you make life more difficult for yourself?
If you’re a developer and find yourself getting stuck then get used to reading the Unity Scripting Reference before going to bed, it’s your best friend and will always help you out.
