From flash to the world of Unity Games
Flash is dead. Or so it has been rumored for a couple of years and still ongoing (See this Discussion here). But I still do things in flash. I think it’s still a better game making tool than many other alternatives. Starling + Flash also makes an awesome combination for Android, iOS and GPU powered web games.
Unity has been making headlines, with lots of awesome Unity games getting media (and game dev’s ) attention, with a free version and support for indies. I’ve decided to try it out, and have already made a couple of test games with previous versions. But felt discomfort with it due to many dissimilarities with flash (which is familiar). But recently when Unity 5 is out, I decided to finish some games and learn Unity along with it. Documentation is fantastic, manual is great, Unity is awesome ( But not so awesome as Flash yet 😉 ) and I’ll be looking forward to realizing some games in unity soon.
