[Dammit, this was supposed to go in http://marooned.posterous.com/ and its Twitter feed, why did it go here? I need to learn to use the auto poster properly. :-( Dang!]
Finally some good progress last night!
I'm working through 3D Buzz's “Simple 2D Shooter” video tutorials, and started building the game they're working on. Sure it's not Marooned!, but it's going to get me up to speed on Unity. More importantly, I feel like I've finally done something useful on the way to ending up with a playable Marooned! game.
Yeah, it's not much, but it's a start. Really looking forward to Unity 3 coming out soon, that's going to make this process even better.
