Rock, Paper, Shotgunity – PenultaBuild!

This was supposed to be the last build of Shotgunity, the game we've been making using the free Unity development suite, with Build 8.1 (NEW LINK). Starting from scratch, with no prior knowledge of Unity, or indeed any type of coding, we planned to make a game based on RPS by today. Did we hit our deadline? Did we hell. But find out how surprisingly…

Rock, Paper, Shotgunity, Post 12

I've realised that the relative complexity of the Shotgunity project might be distracting from a central idea I've wanted to get across in this series, namely that it's easy to make games with the Unity tools. To prove this point, today, together, we're going to make a clone of a giant in gaming ancestry, we're going to make Pong in a post. And not even…

Rock, Paper, Shotgunity, Part 10

Hard to believe we've reached part 10 of the Shotgunity series, but it's true. As the end of our first experiment with the free Unity game development suite rapidly approaches, the mad scrabble to generate assets threatens to be all-consuming. But I'm still managing to make time for what other people are doing with Unity. Call it gathering inspiration, or just plain plagiarism, there's some…

Rock, Paper, ShotgUnity, Part Nine

Don't let the new year and that crisp blanket of white covering Blighty lull you into thinking you've got a fresh start, readers. Some things have continuity, some things linger and refuse to die. Things like Rock, Paper, Shotgunity, the game we're making using the freely available Unity development suite. Get back into the groove with Build 05 after the cut.

Rock, Paper, ShotgUnity, Part Eight

'Twas the weekend before Christmas and all through the InfoNet, children were wondering just what they would get. They'd written to Santa: 'Dear St. Nick hear our plea, All we want is Build 04 of ShotgUnity!' And so it was. Fortunately for Info Claus we're at the half-way point in our attempt to build a game in two months using the free Unity game development…

Rock, Paper, ShotgUnity, Part Seven

Time for the seventh post in our series covering the making of Rock, Paper, ShotgUnity– a game we're putting together in two months using the now-free Unity development suite. Last week's bug fixes seem to have been more successful than not, so this week it's time to get back to adding content. What's the plan for Build 04? Find out below.

Rock, Paper, ShotgUnity, Part Six

Saturdays are for realising you turned thirty while you slept (in both senses), preparing your Biggles outfit for the flying lesson arranged by your lovely missus, and releasing Build 03 of the now legendary Rock, Paper, ShotgUnity game. (Which we've spent the last few weeks making using the free Unity package.) This week I promised the baddies would get some more bite, that I'd take…

Rock Paper Shotgunity, Part Four

It's saturday, I'm awake, so it must be time for Build 02 of Rock, Paper, Shotgunity and the fourth post in our series about making a game from scratch. At the risk of repeating myself, I should explain: we're making a game using the newly-free Unity game development tools. Why not catch up on the story so far and then read on? This week I…

Rock, Paper, Shotgunity, Part Three

The Rock, Paper, Shotgunity project rolls on down the Road of Development like a shiny hubcap liberated from the dirty Lorry Of Gaming. For those still catching up we're making a game - yes an RPS game - using the newly-free Unity engine. Caught up? Read on. This week I'm reaping the rewards of our cunningly nurtured community and also poking around in the innards…

Rock, Paper, Shotgunity, Part Two

Oooh exciting! The first ever build of what critics are literally calling “that thing Carey's made” is here. Rock, Paper, Shotgunity is ALIVE! Those who don't read RPS every day might not have noticed we're making a game using the newly-free Unity development suite. So to explain: twice a week for the next two months I'll be posting about my experiences with the tools. This…

RPS & Unity: Rock, Paper, ShotgUnity

Last month Jim did a pretty extensive interview with development suite Unity Technologies' co-founder Nicholas Francis. It got me thinking dangerous thinks, bold game design thinks well above my station. Jim and I started talking about those ideas, and following the news that the indie version of Unity was to become free that final arbiter of involvement – personal cost – was swayed. We would…
