Unity’s Game Studio Report 2018

A while back Unity approached small independent studios to get a feeling for how they work in the industry and ultimately how they've stayed successful. dotBunny was among the lists of studios contacted, having worked with Unity since 2006. Here are some of my thoughts and comments now that I've seen the collated data.

Back On Trail

The last time I hopped on my mountain bike, I was in my early 20s. Well along my career path with a successful startup behind me, my future was promising. I would ride every morning, through the bush, as fast as I could, pushing my own limits like every irresponsible young adult should. It was my me time where I could think about the day ahead, and map out what needed to get done. Yet, one...

Working with the Unreal Engine source code

Moving away from using the Unreal Engine provided rocket build can at first seem like a daunting task, but after a while, you will probably find yourself asking why you didn’t switch sooner. There are a few prerequisites to being able to use the source code version, but thankfully, this article will attempt to step you through the process as gently as possible. This article will describe...

Building a rocket build from the Unreal Engine source code

So you have moved away from using the pre-built solutions of Unreal Engine; awesome! The next logical step is creating a portable Unreal Engine rocket build of your own. Whether you are working in a large team or working on your own, a rocket build takes the technical lifting out of working with the Unreal Engine source code. It gets you, and your team right into working directly on your project...
