Video game development has found its way to the libraries!
Just this past semester we introduced our brand new video game collection with games for Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox, Xbox 360, GameCube and Nintendo Wii. Now we are proud to announce that Unity Game Development Engine has been installed on the Digital Media Lab’s computers located in the Otto G. Richter Library.
Unity accepted our grant proposal and gave us one year licenses for Unity Pro 5. UM Libraries is sharing this good fortune with the Cinema & Interactive Media Department at the School of Communication. Game development just got a little closer to the University of Miami. With highly-optimizable and beautiful graphics integration, you can deploy games with one click to more platforms than you can believe.
Please drop by the lab and speak with Morgan McKie if you are interested in learning more about game development and the game collection at UM Libraries.
Enjoy this endless runner game where you, as Martian who has a crashed landed on Earth, must race to collect all your lost gold coins. If you cannot see the game try using Firefox.
