In Topic: Getting start on creating my game

10 December 2012 - 03:13 PM

If you like video tutorials, I have been following along with this series (for a 2-d pong-style game)
I think it's great and really well explained. I'm incredibly happy with it.

I'm just beginning (less than a month) with both Unity and learning programming, but have had no problem following these tutorials. The first one is from may 2012 (I link here to part 1B because 1A was just discussing what the tutorials would cover. 1B is where you get started). These tutorials are in easily-digestible 15 minute blocks and use UnityScript I believe. I only have some HTML experience from years ago, but the guy in the video really tries to explain a surprising amount and the scripting was easy for me to get started with. It sounds like you have more experience and could breeze through them even faster. Hope this is helpful to you.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I intend to start with small and simple games like pong, just to get the basics down, then move to slightly more complex games. I have tried to follow some beginner tutorials, but they often just tell you "Do this... Now do this and this... Congratulations! You made a game." --I still won't know what I just did or how it works, because it's never explained. Heck, the most I've learned so far is just by trying to break what I'm told to do. I want to understand what I'm doing and how it works so I know why I'm doing it.
