Unity Series - Part 1: Setup
What Is This Series?
This series will show you the progress of a game that I will be documenting through blogs. You will be able to follow me on my journey and see my thoughts, as well as learn new languages and the user interface of unity
Setting Up Your Unity
If you want to follow me in my journey of game development, you can install Unity for yourself if you haven't already. Go to Unity.com, and when you enter their website, you want to download Unity.
This will redirect you to install it on Windows.
Once you do that, you can go ahead and sign in or create an account when needed (self-explanatory), and once you have completed everything, you can open Unity Hub.
Unity Hub allows you to create projects from 2D, 3D, and many other things, and this will be your go-to app when creating other projects regarding Unity.
When you go ahead and open it, you can see lots of different things. But the main thing you want to focus on right now is the tab where it says installs.
For this blog, I will be using 2022.3.11f1, as this is the latest version prior to this time, and if you need to install another editor, you can do so by clicking on install editor. Then you will be greeted by a tab that allows you to pick different versions. Once you click on the one you want, you will have an option between different platforms to choose from. For this blog, I will be using Windows and WebGL.
( All information is according to the time this blog was written.)
Once you hit install, you will have to wait a bit for the editor to install, and soon you will be able to create your game. When it has finished, you can go back to the Projects tab and create your game. To create a game, press the New Project button on the top right of the page.
When you do so, there will be a page showing you all the different options you can choose from. This game will be in 2D, and you can call it whatever you want to call it.
Click the Create Game button to create your game!
Once your game has loaded, you have completed the setup!
This blog explained how to set up a Unity project and the series I am working on. Upcoming blogs will explain different aspects of the game and what I am planning to do
