Carry out the pre-planning, design, and programming of role playing games (RPGs) using the popular GameMaker: Studio in this very practical and fun book. Author Ben Tyers teaches you how to create a story or plotline for the RPG, apply aesthetics, and develop core and extended gameplay.
Using Learn RPGs in GameMaker: Studio, you can design and build your own RPG using the GameMaker: Studio platform. Build your first game application and deploy in an app store, on Facebook, or just on a PC. Maybe, even, make a few bucks.
Unity is a cross-platform game engine that is used to develop 2D and 3D video games. Unity 5 is the latest version, released in March 2015, and adds a real-time global illumination to the games, and its powerful new features help to improve a game’s efficiency.
In this book, the first in the "Beginner's Guide" series, you will create a simple 2D platform game, create challenging game-play and learn techniques to code more in less time.
This book can be read as a standalone (you don't need to have read the previous books in the series, although it may help) and focuses on: scoring system and lives (e.g., keeping track of the score across the game), user interface (menus and in-game information for 2D games), character movement (e.g., walk, run, jump, crouch, etc.), character interaction (i.e., collect objects or avoid other objects), playful game-mechanics (e.g., bouncing objects, moving platforms, time-limited level, collapsing bridges, etc.) and improving C# programing skills (e.g., important and useful functions and principles that you can reuse in your own games).
