About this book
Beginner game developers are wonderfully optimistic, passionate, and ambitious. But that ambition is often dangerous! Too often, budding indie developers and hobbyists bite off more than they can chew. Some of the most popular games in recent memory – Doodle Jump, Paper Toss, and Canabalt, to name a few – have been fun, simple games that have delighted players and delivered big profits to their creators. This is the perfect climate for new game developers to succeed by creating simple games with Unity 3D, starting today.This book starts you off on the right foot, emphasizing small, simple game ideas and playable projects that you can actually finish. The complexity of the games increases gradually as we progress through the chapters. The chosen examples help you learn a wide variety of game development techniques. With this understanding of Unity 3D and bite-sized bits of programming, you can make your own mark on the game industry by finishing fun, simple games.This book shows you how to build crucial game elements that you can reuse and re-skin in many different games, using the phenomenal (and free!) Unity 3D game engine. It initiates you into indie game culture by teaching you how to make your own small, simple games using Unity3D and some gentle, easy-to-understand code. It will help you turn a rudimentary keep-up game into a madcap race through hospital hallways to rush a still-beating heart to the transplant ward, program a complete 2D game using Unity's User Interface controls, put a dramatic love story spin on a simple catch game, and turn that around into a classic space shooter with spectacular explosions and "pew" sounds! By the time you're finished, you'll have learned to develop a number of important pieces to create your own games that focus in on that small, singular piece of joy that makes games fun.

About the Author
  • Ryan Henson Creighton

    Ryan is the founder of Untold Entertainment Inc., a boutique game development studio in the heart of downtown Toronto. Ryan got his start at a Canadian television broadcaster creating small, simple games for kids and preschoolers. By the time he was through, he had built over fifty games for a wide range of clients including McDonalds, Hasbro, Lego, Proctor and Gamble, Nickelodeon, and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. These games ran the gamut from simple slider puzzles, memory games, and contest entry mechanics to tile-based graphic adventure games and massively multiplayer virtual worlds. Ryan often leveraged his theatre background to perform on-camera in promotional spots for Microsoft and Nintendo. He spent a number of years moonlighting as a video game journalist under the cartoonish moniker "MrSock".Ryan founded Untold Entertainment Inc. in 2007 and has continued to develop great kids' content with broadcasters and independent television producers to help extend their on-air brands online. He packs the company's popular blog with tutorials, designer diaries, and insights into the world of independent game development, employing his signature biting wit and ludicrous photo captions.Through Untold Entertainment, Ryan is developing a number of original properties, which include: Interrupting Cow Trivia, an online multiplayer trivia game; Spellirium, a word puzzle/adventure game hybrid; UGAGS, the Untold Graphic Adventure Game System; and Kahoots, a fun crime-themed puzzle game modeled entirely in clay. Ryan lives and bikes around downtown Toronto with his wife Cheryl, and his two tiny daughters Cassandra and Isabel.
