Play Testing: Coin Hunter
So…while trying to figure out how to fix my Street Life Sim and looking at ideas for making it better, I decided to take a break and create something else. Introducing Coin Hunter.
I signed up with Zenva, which is a rival to Udemy, to see what I could pick up there. One of the courses they offered was “Create your first 3d game with Unity.”
It took me about a week to work through the course because I was mainly working on it late in the evenings for an hour or two as part of the #100DaysofCoding challenge I’d assigned myself.
The end product is a very, very simple 3D platforming game, but it taught me a few concepts I am grateful to have picked up. It also introduced me to the world of 3d games, which I will need for my future goals and visions to take shape.
You’d think it would be really hard, but it was super easy. Barely an inconvenience. (Thank you, Screen Rant Guy)
State of the Game
Right now, it only has two levels. But…it is a game. It does work. You do get a score. You can die. You can restart. You have enemies to dodge.
I might adapt this later to create a writing version where you collect words and then try to assemble them, but for now it is what it is.
I’ve uploaded the zipped file to Google drive. If you want to snag a copy of it, the file is here:
You’ll need to download the file, unzip it, and then go into the unzipped file and double click on the exe file to play.
Let me know what you think. Stay tuned for more games.
