Unity is a cross-platform game engine with a built-in IDE developed by Unity Technologies. It is used to develop video games for web plugins, desktop platforms, consoles, and mobile devices. Unity is a powerful yet intuitive game development tool and environment for the creation of interactive 3D and 2D content. Playmaker is a flexible visual state machine editor and runtime library for Unity 3D that facilitates visual scripting.

Practical Game Design with Unity and Playmaker is a step-by-step tutorial that thoroughly explains how to make a game from scratch quickly and effortlessly. It details the steps required to make a game in seven chapters, each examining one of the aspects of game development in the most practical and concise way possible.
