Can't code? Make games anyway, with the right tools
In today's Gamasutra feature, artist Jay Weston writes about how
he was able to ship his first iOS game with almost no programming thanks to using a Unity plugin called Playmaker, and he details the process.
"My main passion is game design, but without code, you can't make a game, right? With tools like Unity and Playmaker (a visual scripting system for Unity) this isn't necessarily the case," Weston writes.
In the feature, Weston outlines how he used Playmaker to create Unknown Orbit
, which launched this week on the iOS App Store.
He adds this important note: "strangely enough I've found that using Playmaker has actually solidified my understanding of things like object oriented design and other programming/design concepts. So I think it can be helpful in learning these concepts as well!"
