New Playmaker Video Tutorial Series!
« on: October 28, 2011, 04:18:47 PM »
I've created a new video tutorial series, "Game Design with Playmaker and Unity"!

- 13 videos offer over 4 hours of many "bread-and-butter" game techniques using the Playmaker plug-in for Unity3D
- Covers many of the new features in Playmaker 1.2, including global variables, events, and more!
- All videos available in 1280x720, in mov format
- Starts with the basics of Playmaker and builds in complexity, so it's great for both beginners to Playmaker and those with some experience
- Helps you get to the fun faster and easier in your own projects


Three of the thirteen videos are free!  The rest will be available for purchase "very soon" either individually or in a bundle, all for a very affordable price. 

00 - Introduction to Game Design with Playmaker and Unity   (free!)
01 - States Example 1 - Light Switch
02 - States Example 2 - Open and Close
03 - Triggers
04 - Introduction to Variables
05 - Breakable Objects
06 - Platform Color Change
07 - Global Variables, Events and Managers - Health Pickup
08 - Playmaker and iTween   (free!)
09 - Pop Up Manager
10 - Platform Puzzle Chest Opening Game
11 - Access Control, Clicking and and Quests
12 - Connecting Scripts to Playmaker   (free!)


I've worked at several large game companies on titles for PS3, PC, PSP and Wii, and am now the Creative Director at my new company, Well Played Games.  I'm really looking forward to making these available very soon!  As soon as the series is available I'll post here, as well as at http://www.wellplayedgames.com/ and my Twitter feeds.

Thanks Loic Joint!  And don't worry, I'm sure your English is better than my French (which I can't speak at all!)  :)

Assuming this first series does well, I have four more planned, and I'd certainly like to respond directly to user needs with topics I maybe hadn't considered.  So any suggestions are welcome!

That's great !

Personally , I am interested by the use of the Vector3 and the creation of an AI with playmaker (I would add other suggestions next time). I'm very interested by an inventory system (like diablo 1 for exemple).

I go back to your tutorials now ! Thank you again for this Awesome work !

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! 

Loic, I had been planning on showing some AI in a series on making a basic tower defense game.  Would that be something that seems interesting to you, or were you thinking of AI in a different way?

I want to thank you for this too,... they are very helpful and informative...i'll probably have some requests for future tutorials as i get further into this,  for now, the only thing that comes to mind is some further exploration on combining code with playmaker actions, or even how to create/extend actions such as when using playmaker with other middleware classes/code....

thanks again for the great work
