Unity 3D Northwest Event report

What: Unity 3D Northwest

Where: Vision+Media, Media City Salford

When: Tuesday 18th October 2011, 10am-4:30pm

Last week Peter Caddock from Studio Liddell and I organised a one day seminar focusing on Unity – the 3D game engine which is revolutionizing the games industry on behalf of Vision+Media who are based at Media City Salford. The day was aimed at introducing Unity to those who want to learn more and to show how Unity opens the doors to multi-platform game and online 3D development. over 55 participants attended from MDs through to games programmers.

Delegates had the opportunity to hear from the experts about why this is the fastest growing game development tool in the market also the new trends in Unity, fresh from the Unite 11 conference that took  place in San Francisco earlier this month. MD of Unity David Helgason made a special ‘thank you’ video exclusively for our event too!

There was be a chance to see some great examples of Unity in practice, presentations on how to get to grips with the engine, at the end of the event we had a panel of experts made up from the days speakers: Andy StarkCommunity and Technical Writer for UnityWill GoldstoneAuthor and Technical Support Associate for Unity, Andy Brammall – UK Marketing Officer for Unity and Peter Caddock from Studio Liddell and Me  to share  experiences and answer questions.

One lucky chap won a pro licence of the software (value 1,050 Euros)… lots of enquiries as to whether we would be hosting an ‘Advanced Unity’ event next year… all I can say is watch this space.
