We’re Back! Prepare to drink your fill GameBandit Know-how…and maybe even play a little Among Us too!
It’s possible that this first piece of news may make you want to dive right in and keep us busy the entire session today… it was that exciting to me!
It seems crazy to me that it’s taken Lego this long to get into the…well, the Roblox game!?
Roblox has been providing the same kind of game design tools for a while now… and when these Roblox developers create something that people like playing they’re making millions… actually, according to Roblox, it’s over 250 million dollars!
If this is something you’re interested in… the game design or the money… you should definitely check out this guy,:
Roblox also got a great getting started in Roblox programming centre should you want to get in on this developer gold rush!
And they’re really pushing to get into education. How could you see using Roblox in school? Why do so many of these “learning” games fail to get your interest…or do they?
I imagine that Roblox’s education initiatives are taking a lead from Microsoft’s Minecraft.edu
But back to Lego…this new Unity game development partnership feels like an amazing opportunity for us game bandits to get in on the ground floor of a new DIY Lego gaming trend! Could we become the first wave of Lego Unity Game designers?
What kind of a game would you want to create? Do you think we could pull it off with these new Unity tools? Which could you see using to make the latest Mark the soviet sicklefin lemon shark gaming epic!?
Unity has been around for a while now and is the game engine behind a ton of serious triple A game titles! Including Among Us, Fall Guys, Genshin Impact, Phantasmophobia and Kerbal Space Program 2
Of course if Unity isn’t your cup of tea, or you’re too young to drink tea, there’s always Unreal Engine… used in just about every other game you’ve ever heard of and even some TV shows and films (The Mandalorian)
But don’t count Unity out of the film business… though they seem to be more focussed on animation:
Here’s a Canadian Batman fan turned filmmaker using Unity to make Batman movies on a fan’s budget!
So? Filmmaking, Gaming…what do you think you’d enjoy most about animation or game development?
