10:15 Unity Micro Lesson Assignment
In lieu of an Agency project, we are going to each learn something in Unity and share it with the CAWD Fun Games Studio next week Monday at the start of class.
We’ve been tackling a bunch of different parts of the Unity interface while learning about the Karting game Endless Runner Game, Bunny Ball, Breakout, Pinball and the Lunar Lander, however, there are so many stones yet unturned. Maybe you are interested in custom materials and textures, lighting, physics, a basic C# script, audio, special effects, particle systems and ……
I’d like you to find a Unity topic to investigate. Learn about the topic you choose and prepare a short lesson (micro lesson) to teach us about that topic and what you learned. This way we all can benefit.
You can organize your thoughts as a Google Slide or on Google Docs. Your choice. Save your lesson as a PDF so we can view an access it. Load to the Week 35 Unity MiniLesson Dropbox
Be prepared to teach us your Mini Lesson next week on Monday morning.
10:35 Mask Break
10:45 English with Ms. Yopp
11:35 Game Studio Work time
This week you are going to take your Game Design Document and your Trello planner and begin the Analysis and Design stages of the production cycle.
To get a better idea of your needs, I am going to circle around and meet with you to discuss game mechanics. By understanding your core game mechanic, we can best figure out what kind of coding will be required to help you get to a minimal viable product. We’ll also discuss your workflow.
Planning is such an important part of the software cycle. Discussions help to reveal the challenges and opportunities in your game. This is the basics of the Analysis and Design stage of your game.
Lastly, don’t underestimate the value of using the Asset Store, using ProBuilder and looking for models and game components on sites such as Polyhaven.
