Content for you!

This is a bit of a bump of an older post, with a few updates to highlight the new stuff we’ve been working on for our publisher, O’Reilly Media.

Our brand new Unity game development book is out! This is one of the most exciting books we’ve ever written, and you can own it now! (Or read it on O’Reilly’s Safari Learning Platform!)

We also have a bunch of awesome video training on game design, game art, game programming, and game promotion, also available on Safari:

We’ve also got some recent “Learning Path” videos, exclusively out on O’Reilly’s Safari platform:

Our newest books are also available now:

One of the best ways to look at all the training and material we create is on O’Reilly’s Safari platform (which has a free trial). It’s like Netflix for technical training and books.

More soon! ❤

Mobile Game Development with Unity

“If you want to build any kind of game for mobile platforms, you’ve got
to take a look at Unity. This book is an excellent, thorough, and
seriously fun guide to putting together gameplay in one of the best game
engines out there for indie developers.”

Adam Saltsman, Creator of “Canabalt” and “Overland” at Finji

“The best way to learn how to use a game engine is by getting your hands
dirty and building your own projects. In this book, Paris and Jon guide
you through the creation of two radically different games, giving you
invaluable hands-on experience with a wide range of Unity’s features.”

Alec Holowka, Lead Developer of “Night in the Woods” and “Aquaria” at
Infinite Ammo

“This book changed my life. I now feel inner peace, and I’m pretty sure
I can see through time.”

Liam Esler, Game Developers’ Association of Australia

Our new book is (almost) out! You can read it on Safari, or buy it on Amazon, or at your favourite bookseller!

New content! Videos! Books!

We’ve been working with some awesome folks to build a great library of training material for game development with Unity.

These videos are designed to accompany and support our upcoming book, Mobile Game Development with Unity (also on Amazon and Safari).

Here’s what we’ve been working on:

If there’s no purchase available yet, there will be soon! Everything is available on Safari right now, though.

What’s New in Swift 3

Tim, Jon, and I have been working with O’Reilly Media on a free report covering the latest version of Apple’s programming language, Swift 3.

What's New In Swift 3

You can download it, for free, over at the O’Reilly website. The report covers:

  • a high-level view of Swift 3’s changes and new features, and learn how this version differs from Swift 2
  • the Swift Evolution Process and the full list of accepted proposals—including those not yet implemented
  • Swift 3’s changes to the language’s syntax, standard library features, and other areas
  • Swift 3’s use on the server, and use a simple program to learn about Swift’s use on Linux
  • further resources for learning about, working with, and converting projects to Swift 3
