Simpliv LLC, a platform for learning and teaching online courses. We basically focus on online learning which helps to learn business concepts, software technology to develop personal and professional goals through video library by recognized industry experts and trainers.

Unity is one of the exciting and popular game engine that is used to create stunning games in the game industry. If you're interested to gain the skills to develop interesting 2D games with this powerful engine, then go for this Learning Path.

Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.

The highlights of this Learning Path are:

Gain a strong hands-on experience in 2D game development
Learn to publish games on the Web and various mobile devices
Let’s take a quick look at your learning journey. To start with, you will be introduced to 2D game development. The Learning Path describes the process of setting up a project in 2D mode, covers the use of 2D sprites, discusses ways to access 2D objects through code, and explains the basics of the User Interface. You will then build your first game, a “text adventure game” and you will then go on to create an example of this with the various elements.

After making a text adventure game, you will go back to the challenges and use them to improve the game and your 2D game development skills.

Moving ahead you'll understand how to build your initial code structure, and from there, create controllers for your player and the camera. You'll then add in weapons and learn how to keep track of enemy kills, after which, you'll create game-play by scripting in C#. Finally, you'll create the visuals and publish the game to multiple platforms

By the end of this Learning Path, you will have a basic 2D game as well as a reusable game framework and an editor extension to expedite the creation of the 2D game you make.
