50 Tips for Working with Unity (Best Practices)

I have revised these tips. You can find the new list here.) These tips are not all applicable to every project. They are based on my experience with projects with small teams from 3 to 20 people.There’s is a price for structure, re-usability, clarity, and so on — team size and project size determine whether that price should be paid.Many tips are a matter of taste (there may be rivalling but equally good techniques for any tip listed here).Some tips may fly in the face of conventional Unity development.

Le blog de Jerom

Une relique malfaisante et d'un âge invraisemblable, le Trapézoèdre Éblouissant, y serait caché aussi caché, au milieu d'autres horreurs innommables ; son pouvoir, atteindre des dimensions cachées et de lointains univers en fait un portail d'entré parfait pour les avatars de Nyarlathothep... L'aventure démarre dans une forêt : vous entendez les loups hurler alors qu'une église en ruine se profile derrière des sapins rabougris... Mais abrégeons cette introduction! Le background est évidemment un pretexte à explorer un dongeon interminable peuplé d'ennemis féroces et impitoyables!

Le level-design, généré aléatoirement est très réussi et labyrinthique à souhait. Pour discuter du jeu ou télécharger la version 14.1 d'IA, direction le forum officiel : Ludum Dare. For this mini-LD challenge, I decided to try to create a game for the original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

Ludum Dare

This was the first game console that I ever owned as a kid, so creating a game for it was something that I had always wanted to do. Unfortunately, to create an NES game, everything has to be written in assembly. When I was at Georgia Tech working on my computer science undergraduate degree, I did have one project where I had to write assembly code for an emulated MIPS system. The emulator was called SPIM (MIPS spelled backwards), and it looks like it is still available for download today. While writing assembly is not completely foreign to me, it definitely is not one of my favorite things to do. Indie PC game. TIGSource.

Be warned, though. This nostalgia comes with a price. That price is your sanity. Because the games are difficult. Ironclad Tactics is a turn-based strategy game created by Zachtronics, the studio behind The Codex of Alchemical Engineering and SpaceChem. I think we should have some bonding time.

Coming next year to PC and consoles if this Kickstarter has anything to say about it, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero stars Shantae, who, after having a nightmarish vision of an ancient evil about to rise, embarks on a platforming action adventure to stop it using her unique abilities.

As I coach new developers, I've taken to scribbling out the same useful diagram for visualizing the creative process again and again on coffee-ringed napkins.

Using Potential Fields in a Real-time Strategy Game Scenario (Tutorial)

If you’d like to join Johan and myself (Alex J. Champandard) for a live online masterclass (public) on Wednesday, February 4th at 21:00 CET Europe, 15:00 East Coast, then go to for more details. You’ll learn about the key concepts in this tutorial, but also learn how potential fields fit in with high-level AI strategy, dynamic navigation in crowds, and optimizing traditional pathfinding. (These sessions are normally for members only, so don’t miss it!) Bots for RTS games may be very challenging to implement. This is a tutorial about an unconventional planning and navigation method that uses multi-agent potential fields.
