As I’ve heard a lot of good things about the game engine Unity, I decided to try it out today. I’ve had it installed before, but back then I didn’t spend more than a few moments with it.
Unity has proven to be a very intuitive tool for creating environments and, according to a colleague of mine, it remains a powerful and intuitive framework if used to created full games. I’m sure it has some serious limitations and problems, but so far I’ve only encountered minor issues.
Following are a few screenshots I took while creating a small, tropical island.
