After trying to do things the hard way back with Geoblox, I’ve just finished reading through the Sams Teach Yourself Unity Game Development in 24 Hours book. I’ve learned that much of the things I struggled with in creating a game using ActionScript3 are already done for me in Unity. AND I get multi-platform capabilities for free. In the book, I followed the exercises and made 4 little games and added my own little improvements onto them. That experience gives me the confidence that I can return to Geoblox and finish it. Sure, I’ll have to rewrite much of the code, but that effort will just serve to get my mind reacquainted with the game. Adding sounds and music is going to be MUCH easier now.
I’m looking forward to using these new skills!
