Hands-On Unity 2020 Game Development

By: Nicolas Alejandro Borromeo

Overview of this book

Over the years, the Unity game engine has extended its scope from just being about creating video games to building AR/VR experiences, complex simulations, real-time realistic rendering, films, and serious games for training and education. Its features for implementing gameplay, graphics, and customization using C# programming make Unity a comprehensive platform for developing professional-level, rich experiences. With this book, you'll be able to build impressive Unity projects in a step-by-step manner and apply your knowledge of Unity concepts to create a real-world game. Complete with hands-on tutorials and projects, this easy-to-follow guide will show you how to develop your first complete game using a variety of Unity tools. As you make progress, you'll learn how to make the most of the Unity Editor and create scripts using the C# programming language. This Unity game development book will then take you through integrating graphics, sound, and animations and manipulating physics to create impressive mechanics for your games. You'll also learn how to code a simple AI agent to challenge the user and use profiling tools to ensure that the code runs in a performant way. Finally, you'll get to grips with Unity's AR Foundation for creating AR experiences for 3D apps and games. By the end of this book, you'll have developed a complete game and will have built a solid foundation using Unity's tooling ecosystem to develop game projects of any scale.

Chapter 20: Building the Project


In this chapter, we explored the basic concepts that you will use while creating scripts. We discussed the concepts of classes and instances and how they must inherit from MonoBehaviour to be accepted by Unity to create our own scripts. We also saw how to mix events and instructions to add behavior to an object and how to use fields in instructions to customize what they do.

We just explored the basics of C# scripting to ensure that everyone is on the same page. However, from now on, we will assume that you have basic coding experience in some programming language and you know how to use structures such as if, for, array, and so on. If not, you can still read through this book and try to complement the areas you don't understand with a C# introduction book as you need.

In the next chapter, we are going to start seeing how we can use what we have learned to create movement and spawning scripts.
