Description

With the pervasiveness of games and the use of gamification in nearly every industry, the desire to discover how to use state-of-the-art development software has never been so great. There is an increasing number of software tools available to help developers create amazing games for consoles, the Web, desktop computers, and mobile devices. Game engines are among the most powerful of these tools available. The Unity 3D game engine is one of the elite game engines. It has been used to create popular 2D and 3D games by large game studios and indie developers. With a free version available and the release of Unity 5, the time has never been better to start using Unity.

Unity 5 Fundamentals aims to provide those who are new to using game engines with an introduction to game engines, specifically in the context of game development with Unity. It starts with an introduction to game engines, with a specific focus on Unity 5. From there, the course introduces the viewer to the Unity interface, settings, and customizations. After this, core foundational information is understood and the basics of object creation and manipulation are covered.
