Mixing things up a bit and getting my Unity on!

Screen Shot 2013-04-15 at 11.52.39While I’m still quietly beavering away on CV: THE GAME! it has become clear that I am really falling behind on my One Game A Month games! So I have decided to switch things up a bit. The current plan is to run through some Unity tutorials in the next week and a bit, most notably this one, to master the basics. Then make two very quick and small games to get back on track with 1GAM and to learn a bit more about how Unity works.

I’ve dabbled in Unity a few times in the past with the intention of sitting down and getting to grips with it but I have always got distracted by other things like….comic books and….video games…. but this time I am determined because well, Unity is Unity! It is something I really need to learn in order to advance my career. Also to add an extra feather to my cap I am using C# as my code base rather than JavaScript which I sort of already know. There is lots of head scratching involved at the moment but like it was with Java it will click eventually! (I hope!)

So for now there will be very little on the update front while I get back on tack but after that I should be able to get back to regular updates and more robust projects!

Woop! Woop!

Coming this week

I’m determined to get back into the swing of things this week! So expect the following at some point over the next seven days:

  • A new part to Let’s Play God of War Ghost of Sparta!
  • Halo 4 stuff (gameplay impressions, videos, unboxing etc.)
  • A blog post of some sort.

This Week’s Schedule

I’m running behind on a few things this week and it has become clear that I’m not going to hit the deadline for Sony’s game pitch submission competition thing. Oh well!

However I am still going full steam ahead with the adventure game and my aim is to have the pitch document for it done, dusted and up on here for your viewing pleasure by the start of next week.

This week will be a bit bare bones but I will see what I can do to squeeze some more stuff in:

  • Today: Nothing 😦
  • Wednesday: Link Storm
  • Friday: a blog post if I can fit it in

If you are missing my writing and are desperate to read more you can! Just head over to my shiny new comic book blog, The Comic Book Reader and you can witness me ramble on about the comics I’m reading and the key issues facing the comics industry! Seeing as I’ve just started that particular site I am spending some time building it up which is one of the reasons things on here are a bit quiet this week.

I’m also aiming to get at least one more  part of my God of War Let’s Play out this week so keep your eyes peeled for that too.
