Orbit: Construct (June 5th, 6:30pm)

First time attending this event? Please sign-up using our short form at goo.gl/JwpJzx if you haven’t already done so.

If you’re interested in learning to make your own digital games using a simple and intuitive creative tool that doesn’t require any prior experience with computer programming, this is the group for you!

The Construct group meets every Monday evening at Tech Valley Game Space and will provide a place to get feedback and advice on your game project. Join us and learn about how to create 2D games using Construct 2 or Construct 3, one of the best tools available for first time game creators.

After learning the basics, you’ll apply your knowledge by working on your own game project alongside peers, with ongoing support from experienced mentors. Participants of all skill levels are welcome and encouraged to join in the fun!

[Orbit: Unity Mentorship] Sprites! (June 1st, 7:00pm)

First time attending this event?  Please sign-up in our short form over here: goo.gl/JwpJzx

Ever wanted to make a 3D game cheaply on a low-to-medium end computer? Or a 2D game that utilizes the tools more commonly used in 3D engines, such as rigging? Unity may be just the game engine for you! Our TVGS Unity Orbit mentorship group can help provide you answers and resources to any questions you may have on this popular and free software.

This session, a mentor will have a short lecture on how to use 2D sprites in Unity. Taro Omiya will describe how to cut out sprites from a spritesheet, how to turn them into an animation, and even compress multiple 2D images back into one!

The Unity Orbit group will meet on the 1st and 4th Thursday of the month at Tech Valley Game Space and will provide opportunities for participants to share information, discuss projects, ask questions and obtain guidance from experienced mentors.
