JungleShoots

 

Play JungleShoots here!

 

JungleShoots is an early attempt of mine at building a first-person shooter using the Unity engine.

The game took about a week to put together, using many references and guides that I found on the internet. It was meant to be a quick test game that I used to learn the ropes of Unity and coding in C#, so it is by no means a complete product.

The game is a simple multi-player FPS where players shoot at each other. Networking is fully functional, allowing up to 20 players to join a room.

JungleShoots(name pending) is fairly bare-bones at the moment. If I decide to work on it later, I would probably add actual character models and animations, sound, AI bots, a scoring system, and a few other simple elements.

Things that I took away from this project:

  • Monodevelop/C# coding fundamentals
  • Unity Engine basics
  • Network coding
  • Raycasting
  • First Person Controllers
  • Physics systems
  • Animation
  • Collision detection

Unity is an excellent platform to start developing on, there are a great deal of resources available online, and many of them are completely free.

Switching Things Up

Hey followers!

I’ve recently decided to mix things up here on GamingGrad.

The content will be making a shift from news-oriented articles to personal, opinion-based pieces. These will take longer to write, and as a result, will be posted less frequently. Opinion blogging will give me an opportunity to upload quality topics with more substance, which you guys will hopefully find more interesting.

All of the gaming news has been consolidated into a category on the right side of the page, but most of it is outdated so I don’t see why you’d even bother checking that out.

I’m currently immersed in game development, and my future posts will reflect the developmental side of the industry. My writing style may also become more casual, but I’m not sure yet. We’ll see how it goes; hope you guys enjoy the ride!
