Casey Noland
Chief Executive Officer, design3

I'm very happy to feature our first-ever embedded media article in association with design3 and let our community have a look at what kind of content they are working on. Having met and chatted with design3 at a recent conference and learning more myself about what they are all about, I'm looking forward to crafting a deeper relationship between them and GDNet that will benefit members of both sites and work towards our common goal - helping people learn how to make games.

Android Development with Unity

If you’re interested in learning how to make games for Android devices, our first piece of advice is to utilize the Unity engine. Unity is an ideal platform for Android development because it is flexible, easy to learn, and it supports multiple scripting languages (JavaScript and C#). In the following design3 video tutorial series, a Unity engineer will walk you through the process of Android development. Lastly, we’ll show you where you can learn how to make your own mobile games.

Chapter 1 - Introduction & Setup

Learn how to set up your developer account, the Android SDK, and your mobile device for development builds. The necessary support files are included.


Chapter 2 - Troubleshooting

Utilize useful resources for troubleshooting problems and issues specific to Android development.


Chapter 3 - Submitting To App Market

Learn how to prepare and submit your games to the Android App Market.


Additional Mobile Game Development

Not very taken with the Android platform? design3 also has tutorials on other mobile game development. Mobile Skater, a fun Unity mobile game that has been downloaded for free in the App Store over 10,000 times, is the focus of its own series where you’ll learn how to script accelerometer and multi-touch input with Javascript. You’ll also use raycasting, animations, and mobile input classes to implement movement, tricks, and functionality. Downloadable project files are included to give you the assets and code to make this cool mobile game.
