Game Designer Unity

On January 11th, 2008 DATA grad Bryan O'Neil stopped by the Di studio to share some techniques on getting started in video game design. Bryan, who just graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Game Design from the Art Institute and has developed two mobile gaming apps available on iTunes, provided an introduction to the Unity Game Engine to interested students in grades 9 - 12. He demonstrated and answered questions surrounding the addition of assets, developing terrain, and building out for iOS, Web, and desktop platforms.

Notes from Bryan on becoming a game developer
  • Discover what you are good at and make it your passion!
  • Take advantage from all the amazing resources on YouTube
  • Keep in mind - game design studios are in cities close to International airports
  • Develop a solid portfolio because employers want to see what you can do!
Unity is a free and simple to learn game development environment which easily integrates work from 3D software, and has a huge developer community that supports the sharing of techniques.
