May 2016 meetup

Still not too late to sign up now for our May meetup for women wanting to make games, hosted at Bristol Games Hub – Ben Pitt aka @robotduck is teaching us how to set up Player or NPC animated characters in Unity. Here’s a sneak preview of the sort of thing we’ll be up to.

NPC AI

Don’t worry if you’ve never used Unity before – load the free version of the software on to your laptop from the Unity website – and bring yourself along to our meetup. It’s very laid back and great fun as we stumble along together learning how to make things work with Ben.

Tonight! First Tuesday April 2016

There’s never enough time to do AND document. Still need to write up last #FirstTuesday & it’s time for another one!

We have another practical session planned – suitable for beginners too – with the very patient and clever Ben Pitt from Unity. We are going to look at AI/navmesh and don’t worry if that sounds like gobbledigook, Ben is very good at explaining things. Last month we played around with particles and if I was on the pc laptop I would share a screenshot of my teddy bear that puffs out little rainbow cloudlets when you click on it. My excuse is I thought the grandchildren would find it highly amusing, I know I did.

So, head over to the Grrrl Games meetup and join us this evening. All you need to bring is a laptop with Unity installed. Crisps welcome too.
