Oh I forgot to mention the language that most cross games are made from is C++ a language that I have been avoiding since 2002. Well crap… Ill just have to learn it.
Time to get my head down and start reading / YouTubing Unity Tutorials
According to the wonderful wasteland “The Internet”. There are an insane amount of video game development software. So lets just go straight for the kill.
My previous game (Captn Salmon) was an IOS only game. I used XCode to create the game and it was nice and simple (ha). This time around I want to release my game on a multitude of platforms. So I decided instead of writing one game in Xcode and another in Android Studio, I would find some software that will do more…
In walks my hero UNITY!
(Not a paid endorsement)
Unity promises to do it all, being created out of the hearts and minds of fellow programer to make life easier and sharing better.
And the price is perfect for me. Being free for people who aren’t earning any money…Yet!
Fingers Crossed I hope it all works after I download this bad boy from https://store.unity.com
Story: Snailzilla, after escaping from the Karn City Petting Zoo is slowly making her way back to her jungle home. She is a slow moving all devouring giant snail that will not stop until she reaches her target.
Your job is to get the civilians and other good folk out of the way before they meet their sticky doom.
This is currently bouncing around my head:
Imagine, your a happy little ISO Person just going about your daily business, not a care in the world.
You cross a road and chat to some other ISO People.
Then you start to hear a squishing squelchy sound. Looking around you see nothing out of the ordinary. You go about your day like a good little ISO Person. But this slow slithering is getting louder. You look left, you look right. Nothing? You start to tremble as the sound becomes louder and louder.
You try to yell, jump, shake, anything to get help but it’s too late…Snailzilla is here.
SO strap yourself in this is going to be a gooey ride!!
We have not started work on our next adventure Snailzilla. Stay tuned. Ill try and keep you more up-to-date than I did with Captn Salmon.
Good news. After a lot of attempts to throw my iPad across the room. Captn Salmon the game is now out. Try it …You’ll love it.
