An Introduction to the Unity Game Engine

Event Details

  • Date:

The event will be an introduction to the Unity game engine. It will be presented by Chai Lacombe-Bar from Mooshoo Labs, a company specialising in Unity development based in Newcastle and Phil Jeffes from Electro Cat Studios.

During the event we will cover the basics of Unity (an engine for making 3d games). We will look at how assets are imported and scripted in the Unity engine. We will be creating a Tank Game where the objective is to destroy objects, which appear in the environment. The end point for your creation will be the limits of your imagination. There will be instructors on hand to help with any problems which might arise.

Participants in this masterclass will leave with not only the knowledge they gain along the way, but also a working tank game, with starting code provided, which will have been customised as part of the workshop element of the evening.

Participants are asked, where possible, to bring their own laptops with the Unity Engine preinstalled (there is a personal edition available for free from The session will assume no prior knowledge of Unity but any experience of coding or scripting software will be useful.


Please note this event is for 18-24 year olds.
