Now that my PC has been re-formatted (thank you Scott) and has a fully-functioning power supply with a hand-me-down graphics card from the CaveChild that is 4 times better than my old one, I can actually work online without wanting to toss my PC through the office window because of sluggishness followed by non-responsiveness on Thursday and Friday (hence the lack of news stories).
CRC Press announced earlier this week that Game Development for iOS with Unity3D by Jeff Murray is now available for Kindle, in addition to the already-released paperback and PDF versions. Purchasers of this eBook version will gain unlimited access to all chapters and extra content in PDF format.
In his debut titl, Jeff takes you through the complete process of Unity iOS game development. A game developer for over 12 years, Jeff presents production-proven techniques and valuable tips and tricks needed to plan, build, test, and launch games for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. He walks you through all the necessary procedures, including how to publish your game to the App Store.
This practical 230 page book encompasses the whole range of iOS game development, beginning with advice on writing a game design document and getting Apple developer certification. It then covers the build processes of the Unity Remote application and explains how to use the Unity editor. After focusing on debugging and optimization, the author describes tips for designing and marketing a successful App Store page. The book also features two iOS-ready games to explore, adapt, and play. Source files for the game examples are available to book purchasers.
Accessible to indie game developers and small- to medium-sized studios, this hands-on guide gives you the tools and knowledge needed to start building iOS games with Unity3D and then launch them to the App Store.
