It has been nearly 6 months since I wrote the last entry here, and for over 5 of those months, I have been doing diddly squat in regard to creating my game. That finally ended last week, when I got back into the Unity class and finished the space shooter game I had just started making when I took my unscheduled break. I was going to finish the last two games in that class series, but they are both more action-orientated games, and probably would not teach me much of what I need to know. So I did a Google search and found a tutorial for making an idle game. Perfect! I can already tell it is going to teach me exactly what I need to at least get a really good start. I can now say that the Aw...(more)
