Interested in learning more about the game development platform used to develop Pokemon Go? ACM (Academy for Creative Media) System is sponsoring a free workshop, “Roadshow,” on Unity, the popular development platform used for Pokemon Go. Featuring Americas Director and Global Leader of Evangelism at Unity Technologies, Carl Callewaert, the workshop is Sept. 16, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the UH West Oʻahu Creative Media Lab (E-139).
Unity is the most popular game development platform in the world and is perfect for both the novice and veteran video game design student.
Attendees will be introduced to building multiplayer and virtual reality (VR) games while learning, hands-on, about the workflows and features used by top game studios. During the Roadshow, attendees will learn how to build a brand new 3D game and VR experience from start to finish while touching upon many of the diverse systems and tools that Unity offers.
Prior to attending these workshops, learners should install the latest stable build of Unity, currently 5.3.5 (please no beta installs due to instability and feature changes) (free Personal Edition download). Additionally, learners should open Unity at least one time prior to the roadshow as internet is needed the first time the software is opened. It is also advised to bring a mouse.
The events are free and open to the public to anyone who registers — based on limited seating. It is likely the seats will fill quickly, so please register at your earliest convenience. Sign up here: https://goo.gl/forms/gWqOjf50hbORBv6A2.
