Sydney iFest
« on: April 05, 2011, 08:00:27 PM »
I'll be doing a one hour workshop at the Sydney iFest event this weekend (10th April) titled "Rapid Prototyping with Unity and PlayMaker".

Basically I'm going to get gameplay mechanics suggested by the crowd and see how fast we can get something playable together.  Should be fun!

I'll post the results of the session up.

Anyone in Sydney this weekend should check it out.

There will be some cameras around tomorrow, so hopefully I can get some decent footage of the event.

Zero to gameplay in under an hour! That is rapid prototyping!  How did it go yesterday?

Well I managed to get very close to having a split screen 3rd person version of Pong working in an hour!  Had individual movement, ball bouncing around (although the physics kept messing up on me and flying all over the place)  Kill zones behind the paddles that then re-spawned the ball, so overall not too bad for an hour in front of 40 odd people.

They actually stopped people from coming into the room because there were too many!

I got some good footage, so hopefully I'll be able to get that cut up over the next couple of weeks.
I'll keep you posted!

Yes, I'd say not bad at all! (quite awesome actually!)  Having to beat folks away is also pretty awesome :-)  Glad it went well and thanks for giving folks a view of Playmaker in action :-) Can't wait to see your footage!  ;D ;D
