I am OctoMan and I have a passion for games. I started to create small projects using Game Maker but now I make games and small apps using the latest and greatest of Unity3D. Unity3D has it all and with my help,
you can make 2D and 3D games too!
A little about me:
I’ve always wanted to be an art teacher. So I became a certified 3D Artist. At first I spent my time creating 3D objects but then in 2004 I evolved into a Game Creator with the art skills to back it up. My goals have changed. I not only want to be a game teacher, I want to be
your game teacher.
Usually i create tutorials on Youtube for free or requested patreon tutorials.
I create videos about Unity since 2015.
