Unity Drop-in Nights – Breaking for Christmas

Our Unity drop-in nights will be taking a break over the Christmas period while this humble blogger grits his teeth and prepares to dive into the capitalist soul-draining maelstrom that is modern Christmas cheer.  Wish me luck…

 

We’ll be announcing our next drop-in night in the New Year. In the mean time, have a merry and relatively stress-free Christmas and why not pop along to our fantastic 091 Labs Xmas Get-Together? We’ll be meeting up in the space (47 Eyre Square, above Kennedys Pub, for those not in the know) from 7pm on Friday the 16th of December for food, games and general festive hackery. Hope to see you there!

Unity3d drop-in group session Wednesday 26th @ 6pm

Hello all,

While Mark works on the final content of his unity3d Game Development Workshops, 091 Labs will be running some Unity3d drop-in work-groups. Tomorrow evening from 6pm participants can show-off/work on their own game projects, follow a Unity3d tutorial, or share examples of particularly well-made/unusual games built using the engine (for example, Parallax or the winners of the Kongregate Unity Game Contest).
Tomorrow’s tutorial will be the 3D Platform Game tutorial from the Unity 3D site – pdf and files can be downloaded from here: http://unity3d.com/support/resources/tutorials/3d-platform-game.
Hope to see you there!
