Gabriel’s Legion: A Flash Game in Development

A few semesters ago there was a project I started called Gabriel’s Legion that I wanted to work on. I had some great ideas rolling around in my head during this time and they started to snowball. The idea of the game is pretty simple, You would have a hero (In this case Me) who is fighting against zombies and other creatures of the dead. But, why is it called Gabriel’s Legion you ask!

Getting Started in Unity Game Development

Over the last few months I’ve began my journey into the world of Unity development. Starting with my internship at Bully Entertainment I had never worked with the engine before. While hitting the ground running with no shoes and this being my first experience, I had to catch myself up.

They are very helpful but besides the actual unity website the tutorials become very thin. Don’t worry, just like you, I am new the whole process myself and learning something new every day. Luckily this semester I started a series of events that all fell in order for me. Continue reading
