I recently decided to sit down and start tackling game design in Unity 5 as I’ve always wanted to join the game design industry. The first few days I spent connecting with artists, music composers, you name it. As a result I discovered #1GAM. For those of you who are unfamiliar with #1GAM, it is a game jam that occurs every month. The goal is to design one game a month. The nice thing about #1GAM is that you can start early and submit late. The rules are extremely flexible. This environment promotes incremental learning and can set constraints that help designers to think realistically about what they can make in a short period of time.
That’s about all I have to say for my first blog post, but you can expect more to come as I make progress in my studies and projects!
