Time to get serious with your digital game-making skills!

 

Join veteran digital game designer Javier Kadry at LAPL Pio Pico (Google Maps) on Saturday, September 27th from 11am-1pm for a crash course in Unity3D, one of the leading digital game design platforms of today.  In this workshop, attendees will learn the basics of how to navigate through and utilize the inspector window for drag-n-drop functionality and editing variables, creating and importing 3D objects, establishing proper lighting, building proper asset management & hierarchy for scenes, using materials and textures, writing light C# & Javascripts, using the Unity Asset store and finally exporting builds for PC, Mac and browser versions so you can share your creations!  By the end of the workshop, our goal will be to complete all of the steps to build a side-scrolling 3d/2d platformer/runner.

Ages: 12+; all children under the age of 13 MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Cost: FREE!

Materials: All of the library's computers will have Unity3d pre-installed for this event, but if you prefer to use your own laptop,
