Introduction to Unity: Getting Started – Part 1



In this Unity tutorial, you’ll learn the following:

  • How to install Unity and what the differences are between the four different versions. 
  • What the different views are that make up the Unity interface. 
  • How to navigate within the Scene view. 
  • How to add and manipulate GameObjects and their Components.

The first part of the tutorial is all about familiarizing yourself with the Unity User Interface. 
In the second part you will apply this knowledge to create your first game, a small space shooter. You will do so with the help of a fairy god mother that provides all the scripts and some models, so you can focus on the Unity Interface some more.

I strongly recommend Probuilder for any level design work done in Unity.


It's a really, really great tool for fast prototyping and iteration on blockouts.


It's also free as of a few months back, as Unity bought it and added it to their growing list of free extensions for people to use 😄


It's been used to make some cool stuff 😄

Just going to echo @Cameron.  Probuilder is excellent.  It's honestly one of the best tools around for building and iterating on levels quickly.
