Welcome to my beginner livestream, “The Building Blocks of Unity”!

Along with Andre (better known as Mix and Jam), I’ll be discussing two of the “building blocks” within the Unity engine: GameObjects and Components. GameObjects are what take your game from nothing to something. Components take those GameObjects to the next level (pun intended) by giving them behaviors and functionality!

During the stream we’ll build a target-shooting game, learn essential Unity tips, and answer your questions throughout with live Q&A.

Once we’re live, share a screenshot, gif or video of you working on the project and tag Unity on Twitter (@unity3d) or Instagram (@UnityTechnologies) along with the hashtag #CreatorStream, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $75 USD Unity Gear Store gift certificate! We’ll be giving away a gift certificate every half hour, so hang, learn and participate on Twitter for a chance to win!

Tune in on May 3rd at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET for our next live Youtube event, Your First Game Jam! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dweo04X7mJU

Q: How long is the livestream?
