Review by Dave Vogt
If you're interested in getting into game development, then chances are you've heard of Unity. Unity is a development middleware- a software platform and engine that basically streamlines and simplifies the process. Not only that, but it has utilities to easily port your software to various platforms, including PC, iOS, Wii U, and many, many more.
"Mastering Unity 2D Game Development" is an eBook that will teach you the ins and outs of using Unity to create 2D games, and walks you through a sample RPG project; going as far as to provide you with a library of sample code and free graphical/audio assets. Beyond that, the book also covers a multitude of other subjects pertinent to creating and selling your game. You get technical advice such as how to extend and add on to the Unity editor itself, and effectively deploying to the multiple platforms that Unity supports. There is also a lot of important info on the non-tech side; work flow and project management, planning and preparation for publishing, and even a bit on APIs and different monetization options.
Is this book right for me?
