Where To Learn How To Create Games In Unity 3D

Links to Unity learning resources.
It's a funny thing, but a lot of people including myself have a tendency to go looking for the perfect YouTube tutorial or article on how to do stuff like make video games. However, where do the people creating those tutorials learn about it? Do they work for the company? Maybe sometimes, but definitely not always. Do they have an inside source giving them the scoop? Doubtful. Did they go to school for years to learn these amazingly technical skills? *picking myself up from the floor* Bhahahaaha...

I know that's a big statement. Please give me a chance to back it up and then feel free to rip my logic to shreds. I'm going to state the problems first and then I'll outline the market conditions that lead me to this conclusion. Also, the article title is not not meant to be hyperbole and/or clickbait. So what are the three problems? Create a Head Mounted device (HMd) that will conveniently work with an unprecedented array of phone models and operating systems. Implement a remote, ...

Making Money With Xperia AR Effect Apps

One way to make money creating 3d models for virtual reality.
I'll be the first person to admit it's taking Sony Mobile way too long to release the SDK for their Xperia AR Effects and this speech isn't well prepared, but maybe it's Sony Mobile's leadership issues that will make this a profitable niche for people looking to get into Mixed Reality development. For some reason they've only created about 30 apps and yet they have millions of users and supposedly (if you watch the video) a lot of demand for more content. I'm curious why they haven't committed m...

Yes, that article title is exaggerated, but it got you to click and so here we are. There are going to be a lot of opportunities for VR/AR content creators and no one really knows which platform is going to be the most profitable yet. Moving on. First, what is Project Tango?

A Billion Dollars Is Cool, BUT So Is Ten Million

Palmer Luckey meme.
"Everyone" sees these "kids" in the news making billions with their new apps and "all" the focus is on who's going to create the next Uber, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook. etc. But the thing is, there are only a few of those big winners. It's fine, even great, to go for big dreams and shoot for the moon if you're pursuing something that is truly your passion. But talent is not enough when it comes to building a billion dollar technology business. It also requires things that are outside of our co...
