A compressed but comprehensive tour through Unity, a free and widely used game-making tool for creating 2D and 3D games and VR experiences.

Intro to Unity

Wednesday, November 28, 2018
6:00pm - 10:00pm

DMG Workshop • 32 Lisgar Street, 3rd Floor

Have you used other gamemaking tools but want to learn how to use Unity? Brand-new to gamemaking and want to try out a popular engine? This is the workshop for you!

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the basics of Unity, a popular gamemaking tool used by a wide range of gamemakers (2D and 3D), including triple-A and indie studios, freelance developers and solo artists.

We will take a compressed but comprehensive tour through Unity’s many systems and learn how to go about using them to create games.

Instructor: Greg Puzniak

What you’ll learn

  • The benefits of using Unity and advantages over other tools
  • How to navigate and use the interface and basic built-in components
  • Basic terminology and design vocabulary
  • How to bring in art assets and implement pre-made code
  • How to find free resources to learn more on your own

Is this for me?

This workshop is perfect for:

  • Anyone who has never made a game before and is curious about it. No programming, art, design or gaming experience or skills necessary.
  • Experienced game developers who have never used Unity before, or have but want a structured introduction to its paradigms or a refresher.

Dames Making Games will be hosting several Unity-based workshops in the future, so this workshop is recommended for anyone who is looking to start using Unity or who might be interested in participating in future workshops!

What to bring

If you have a Windows or Mac laptop, please bring it. Download and install Unity 2018.2.x before the workshop (it’s free).

If you do not have access to a laptop for the night of the workshop, let us know ahead of time (at least 48 hours) and we’ll have one ready for you to use.

Light refreshments will be provided, and TTC tokens are available by request.
