No previous programing knowledge required (but it helps). “Unity Bootcamp” will get you started with all the basics of creating a game in a modern, easy to use environment.
You will learn how to:

- Particle effects
- Controlling a character in a 3D environment
- Importing textures, models, and sounds
- Scripting interaction, scoring, and other game-play elements
- Basic animation

Students are encouraged to bring their own laptops with the latest version of unity installed: http://unity3d.com/unity/download. Unity works on both mac and PC. There will be a limited amount of PCs available for use.
