The functionality in the template includes player movement using the new input system, simple enemy behavior, level loading through portals, damage, health, weapon switching, menu system, tilemap level creation, coin pickups and more.

The code has been specifically written to be easy to understand and commented throughout.

Hi, y'all! I'm Stephen, fancy seeing you here.

My earliest memories of game design are in my childhood creating custom rules and splicing together board games with my friends. While game design got away from me in adulthood, I’ve reignited the passion for game dev in the past few years.

I tried picking up Unity and programming a couple of times over the years but always seemed to fall short. It wasn’t until I found GameDev.tv that it really stuck! I’ve now fallen into the endless pit of learning of all things indie game dev - and I’m absolutely obsessed!

Other hobbies include hiking in the Utah mountains with my dog and wife, loading up another game of Dota 2 for the quintillionth time, and pretending to be good at poker.
