Izatt International has announced a new gaming course for developers interested in learning how to make an iPhone game. It takes place on February 20 – 21, 2009 at the Noah Building in Lindon, Utah (located south of Salt Lake City, near Orem). It costs $845 (an academic discount is available).
The course’s instructor is Ontario Britton, the developer responsible for Clever Coding’s Paper Pilot, a 3D action game available for purchase from the App Store.
The two-day course will help developers understand how to use Unity, a game development engine, along with tools like Gimp and Blender. Britton will show you how to create 3D games, 2D shooters and other products using those tools, which, at least initially, cost nothing to download and use.
Developers interested in the course should have programming experience, hopefully in scripting and gaming; their own Intel-based Mac; Unity iPhone Publisher trial edition or full version; Gimp and Blender (both are free to download) and the iPhone developer’s SDK.
