Best Practices in creating game prototypes in 3 hrs or less
- Game Development
- Project length: 5h 10m
This project will teach you all the tools you need to create quick and dirty prototypes in general as a game developer, but the examples will be in Unity. We'll be seeing some game theory first, game design, existing video game examples and then some code for our own prototypes in under three hours.
Best practices in creating quick prototypes in three hours or less
This tutorial series will be an in depth explanation of how to judge your game idea and turn it into a FAST and efficient proof of concept. You will receive advice and mindset tips along enough examples to work with for your prototypes.
