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


Feedback is an important topic in video games. It gives valuable information to the player, such as the location of enemies if there is a 3D sound setup, distant shooting depicted by muzzle flashes in the background, life bars indicating that the player is about to die, animations that react according to the player's movements, and so on. In this chapter, we saw different forms of feedback, sounds, VFX, animations, and the UI, which we already created in Part 2 of this book. Here, we learned how to use scripting to connect the UI to the game.

Now, you can script the UI, particle systems, and sounds to react to the game status, including changing the score text or the life bars of the UI or playing particle and sound effects when the character shoots. This improves the player's immersion experience in your game.

In the next chapter, we are going to discuss how to create a challenging AI for our enemies.
