Experimental game designer Sagan Yee (director of the Hand Eye Society) will present a grab-bag of techniques for making weird, offbeat games in Unity. Aimed at game curious beginners who may have dabbled with the engine before, but aren't sure how to jump in and start making cool things, participants will take away some fun techniques including: Using the Billboard script on looping 2D animation in 3D space, building a small world in SketchUp, and putting videos on spheres! The instructor will provide pre-made scenes and objects to work with.

Intended audience: People who want to learn Unity in an artsy way; people with no formal coding background; people from other artistic disciplines who are interested in making games. Participants don't have to be Unity experts, but it would help if they've at least tried a few basic tutorials.

Some knowledge of Unity.

Tools participants should bring:
Participants will need to provide their own laptop with a recent copy of Unity installed.
