Unity and Facebook and 3D Sounds Like Mixing Oil and Water

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Unity logo Can this be?? A fast-paced, 3D shooter game on a turn-based social game platform like Facebook? Isn’t that illegal or something? Evidently not!

Company representatives from Unity, the extremely popular multi-platform game development tool, will share the experiences and techniques used by CMune for Facebook integration with Paradise Paintball 3D.

When: Monday, November 2
Time: 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Where: Cogswell College in the Dragon’s Den

 

 

This talk represents one of the futures in gaming. Social game platforms are currently dominated only by casual turn-based highly viral titles. Find out what happens when fast-paced 3D games meet highly viral social web platforms. Keep in mind it hasn’t been done enough for anyone to have discovered the initial formulas for success or failure.

Due to the leading edge nature of the Unity Speaker topic, we are opening this particular Social Game Fest Session to all Cogswell students for free without registration.

If you want to stay for the tutorials about creating apps and games for Facebook, you will need to register for Session 3 so you can login to the server.
