Game Design and Unity

I had a great time talking Monday night on Game Design and Unity.  Here is a quick synopsis of what I covered:


Probably the hardest part of game development is just getting started.  We will take a look at focusing on creating your own Game Design Document.

Once we review the general concepts of our document, we will jump into a live session of building a quick app as well as using 2D Toolkit.  We will cover the following topics:

• Input: Touch and Keyboard/Controller

• Particle System

• Collision Detection

• Finite State Machines (FSM)

• Sprite Collections and Animations

• Dicing your sprite sheets

• Sprite Batching

Thank you to everyone who came out and attended!  We had a full house and that is always nice.

I also wanted to post the link to my slides documents and source code made during the talk.

Until next time…

    I think the hardest part for me, as a programmer, is the design and artwork. In fact, I totally suck at it. Have any suggestions in that area?

      Hi Chris,

      I really think a good place to look is this site:


      A lot of my design and inspiration has come from just going through their tutorials.
