Hey so our Project for OOP it’s about exploring the object part of the Platform Unity.
We had some ideas before this, but it was all around the Unity Platform, first we decided to make an Arena Shooter in which we interacted with objects as models(Character, scenario, power-ups) mostly made from the Community but it turned out to be more complicated than it seemed.
And so, we saw this Tanks Game in the Unity page, they basically give you all the stuff to make it, you have to follow a tutorial and you end up with the game as a single player or local multiplayer (two players in your own computer).
Seemed ok at first, but then this Unity Roadshow Multiplayer happened. It was a course in which some certified people from Unity teached how to make the Tanks Game a multiplayer with some implementation on the original build.
This convinced us way way more, that means we did abandon the previous project.
The event was not all about the course, also some Developers came up and showed us their projects, how it became a thing, how much effort was put into this and how much time it took them (some guy has been developing his own game for 4 entire years).
Here’s some proof that we attented this event (we had to sacrifice an entire saturday for this).
There we can see Gerardo’s perspective and mine, also they gave us this Unity Roadshow cup (AND THEY GAVE US FREE PIZZA), we were learning objects and their interactions on Unity as how everything assemble to create the game.
At the end we got the multiplayer version(kinda) and started changing stuff from it.
Real talk, Hermes did the most work here as he modified the game to be a 3rd Person tank shooter, changed some stuff from the scenario and right now he’s fixing some bugs (which we detected as we tested the game on Ken’s class).
We are planning to test the multiplayer on different networks to see if it works, since we have been playing on the same network, then we make a gameplay video and also explaining how objects interact and what we learned about it.
Also thinking about sharing it with you guys! It really is fun.
