Our next meetup will cover various things you can do with Unity including working with Unity and Blender, using the 2D Toolkit to create 2D games with Unity, and scratching the surface of the state based “Mecanim” animation system. We’ll also show introduction to Unity itself including how to build you game for multiple platforms, work with source control, and basic project structure. The format will be an open discussion led by local game developers Levi D. Smith, Dylan Wolf, and Michael C. Neel so be sure to bring your questions and we’ll do our best to answer them!
The meetup will be held at the Technology Cooperative locating in the Knoxville Old City at 130 W. Jackson Ave. As always we will start at 2PM and open with a Show ‘n Tell where everyone can show a bit of their in progress game, favorite tool, mechanic they love in another game, or anything they find helpful and want to share with the group.
Special XNA Meetup July 12th at 8PM
CodeStock is this weekend and XNA MVP Chris Gardner will be in town to join us for an evening of remembering the framework we love that was brutally struck down in it’s youth by a faceless, evil, greedy, mega-corporation who shall remain nameless. Expect an evening of swapping XNA and XBLIG stories, how many of us started making games because of XNA, and complaining that MonoGame still doesn’t have a content pipeline replacement.
