For those who are interested in the Unity Workshop tomorrow,

Peter Lu will be leading the Unity Workshop from 12-5 PM, and within those hours participants can expect to create their own game similar to the iPhone applications. For example, Lu’s ‘Angry Turds 3’ test project is a 3D descendent of the popular Angry Birds application, created through the Unity game engine. In a span of 30 minutes, we were able to experiment with the parameters of objects ┬áincluded in the ‘Angry Turds 3’ project, including the addition of 3D objects such as a big orange cat, cylinders, platforms, ammunition and Abraham Lincoln himself. Even being new to Unity, we were able to figure out how to interact newly created objects with the game environment. This means that beginners or veterans to Unity and/or game design in general will still be able learn and create a fully functional, prototype game through the workshop.

We can’t really go into depth with how exactly the workshop will be because we only had a mere half hour to explore what’s to come in the workshop tomorrow. Jonathan and myself might be here tomorrow to learn with the rest of you who are planning to attend this event. We look forward to seeing you!
