This course is designed to provide new users with a strong design foundation in Unity 3D 3.5—a game engine for mobile and desktop games and real-time simulations—as well as an introduction to scripting and game functionality. Author Sue Blackman explores the major features in Unity and applies them in actual game situations. She shows how to add lights, texture, multiple views, and effects like fire and smoke to each scene and employ reusable assets. The end result is a sample game with a lush environment, fully animated characters, and some basic interactive gameplay.
