Lesson Night: Unity Features You May Not Have Known About! (February 21st, 6:30pm)

Presenter: Taro Omiya

Description: Unity, one of the most popular game making tools, is jam-packed with features like state-of-the-art 3D graphics, an efficient physics engine, and ability to build for PC, mobile, consoles, AR, VR, and Mixed Reality. But did you also know that you can add split-screen without any scripting? Or add echo zones for your audio? Self-proclaimed local Unity expert Taro Omiya will go over some lesser known, but useful features in this powerful tool.

Special Notes:

  • A laptop with Unity3D installed

About the instructor:
Taro Omiya is the sole developer who founded Omiya Games, an experimental indie studio that creates many renowned game jam games such as first-place winner of Ludum Dare 37’s innovation category, The Recursive Dollhouse. His tools-of-choice are Unity, C#, and bits of Photoshop, Blender, and Garage Band here-and-there. His open-source game jam projects are available on Itch.io, and their source code is on his BitBucket page.
