Unity My first game

Recommended Posts



I have a game idea that I think is fairly original for a moba. I would like to program it.


I've almost finish the brainstorm part, constructing on paper what the game should be, now I would like to start the construction phase.

The problem is that I have never done that and I really don't know where to start, I've been looking for some game engine, I think unity 5 is best for me because I heard it's user friendly. I've VERY LITTLE base of java and that's it.


As a beginner, I would like some advise on what to do, or someone to guide me to some good tutorial or learning site for unity and programming in general. A list would be awesome, for example


1st: go to this website, watch the whole video and complete the course

2nd: do this one about unity and blablabla



5th: Start the game itself start by this and than do this...



Feel free to message me or email me, I would really like a tutor, or just someone to guide me.


I planed starting seriously at the end of my semester and I will have 3 month to do it from nothing. The final version dont neet to be the final one, Only the general structure of the game.


Thanks a lot, feel free to ask any questions

This question resonated with me, being in the same position once upon a time.


So if it were me starting out again this is probably the path I would take:


3 things you will need, consider this your basic learning path:


1. Know enough of a programming language to get shit done and understand your development environment, whether it be Mono Develop (Ships with Unity) or Visual Studio etc..

2. Be comfortable with maths.

3. Pick a game engine / framework.


Now for the learnage:


1.) Pickup C#, aside from it's use in Unity it also widely used in software / web development and it's a great transferable skill to have.


Depending on your ability level and exposure to programming, the following resources should be a good starting point:






2.) Brush up on your maths, not essential but recommended.


3.) Become familiar with Unity.


This tutorial series of tutorials will get you up to speed with Unity's interface:


This tutorial will introduce you to some of Unity's core concepts and leave you with a small game project which you can re-engineer to your hearts content.



A parting word, game development is difficult, it requires many skills and endless patience. 


But its an incredibly rewarding process and I would say do not be afraid to fail, through failure we are given a fantastic opportunity to grow.

I have to agree with this statement.  Also to add to this is do lots of iteration, meaning make changes and test the game to see how they play out.  Don't be afraid to get feedback so you will know if your heading in the right direction.  Lastly good luck and never stop learning!

      I'm looking for programmers for an rpg I want to make. If you're wondering what "semi-turn based" means, it means that you take turns, but instead of a rigid back and forth like Pokemon, a timer determines when you can act, a sort of modernization of the classic Final Fantasy Active Time Battle system. Right now, I'm looking for programmers to create a prototype of both the combat system and the movement outside of combat. Preferably for Unity C#. Concept artists, particularly for characters, and writers to help me flesh out the character and story aspects, would also be helpful.
      Here's a concept doc to fully explain things:
      If you can fill another role and are interested, feel free to let me know as well.
      At the moment, this is purely a hobby project, with no payment planned. If we produce something we feel we can release, then of course we'll work out something for compensation. But, again, don't join this project counting on payment.
      If you're interested, contact me on here, or at . Thanks.

      itSeez3D, a leading developer of mobile 3d scanning software, announced today a new SDK for its automatic 3D avatar generation technology, Avatar SDK for Unity. The Avatar SDK for Unity is a robust plug-n-play toolset which enables developers and creatives to integrate realistic user-generated 3D avatars into their Unity-based applications. SDK users can allow players to create their own avatars in the application or integrate the SDK into their own production processes for character design and animation.
      “Virtual avatars have recently become increasingly popular, especially in sports games and social VR apps. With the advance of VR and AR, the demand to get humans into the digital world is only increasing”, said Victor Erukhimov, itSeez3D CEO. “Our new Avatar SDK for Unity makes it super-easy to bring the avatar technology into any Unity-based game or VR/AR experience. With the Avatar SDK for Unity now every developer can bring face scanning technology into their games and allow players to create their own personalized in-game avatars, making the gameplay much more exciting and immersive.”
      Key features of the Avatar SDK for Unity:
      Automatic generation of a color 3D face model from a single selfie photo in 5-10 seconds (!). Works best with selfies, but can be used with any portrait photo.
      Shape and texture of the head model are unique for each person, synthesized with a deep learning algorithm crafted by computer vision experts
      Head models support runtime blendshape facial animations (45 different expressions)
      Generated 3D heads include eyes, mouth, and teeth
      Algorithms synthesize 3D meshes in mid-poly resolution, ~12k vertices, and ~24k triangles
      Six predefined hairstyles with hair-recoloring feature (many more available on request)
      Avatar generation API can be used in design-time and in run-time, which means you can allow users to create their own avatars in your game
      Cloud version is cross-platform, and offline version currently works on PCs with 64-bit Windows (support for more platforms is coming soon)
      Well-documented samples showcasing the functionality.
      The Avatar SDK for Unity is offered in two modes - “Cloud” and “Offline”. The “Cloud” version is available at and the “Offline” version is available by request at
      About itSeez3D
      At itSeez3D, we are working on the computer vision technology that turns mobile devices into powerful 3D scanners. itSeez3D has developed the world's first mobile 3D scanning application that allows to create high-resolution photorealistic 3D models of people's' faces, bodies and objects. The application is available for iOS and Windows OS mobile devices powered with 3D cameras. In 2016 the company introduced Avatar SDK that creates a realistic 3D model of a face from a single selfie photo.
