Unity is one of the leading game engines for designing 2D & 3D interactive environments – the cornerstone of what many new virtual reality experiences are being built on. Using this powerful piece of software, you will learn how to create your own immersive worlds, building environments and importing characters, as well as being taught the fundamentals of adding interactivity and exporting to different platforms so that others can try out your experience for themselves.
With the basics mastered, you will learn how to incorporate real-world references into your project and be encouraged to produce a piece of 3D journalism for your final assignment.
Whether you have a keen interest in game design, have some done some basic coding or want to see what all the fuss over immersive storytelling is about – this is the class for you. You will leave with a solid understanding of 3D level design, the Unity interface and the ability to produce your own interactive video games.
Over four three hour sessions, Dan Archer and Pierre Depaz from VR/AR storytelling agency Empathetic Media will walk you through the core concepts and potential of this transformative technology.
