Starting a First Person Shooter (3D) Workshop

Unity workshop #3

The Third Unity workshop: "Starting a First Person Shooter (3D)" will be holded at CoderBunker March 11th from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. From 2D to 3D and get ready to future VR workshops.

What is First Person Shooter?

First Person Shooter (FPS) is a video game genre which is centered on gun and projectile weapon-based combat through a first-person perspective; that is, the player experiences the action through the eyes of the protagonist. The first-person shooter shares common traits with other shooter games, which in turn fall under the heading action game. From the genre's inception, advanced 3D or pseudo-3D graphics have challenged hardware development, and multiplayer gaming has been integral.

Workshop Description

In the first two sessions we built a simple pong game in 2D. In this session, we’ll enter the 3rd dimension! We'll learn how to deal with different input sources, camera management, and really mean enemies. Don’t hesitate to join even if you know nothing about Unity and game development, or missed the previous weeks - we’ll take things at a nice steady pace.
