Thank you for picking up this book and making the decision to try your hand at Android development with
Unity. You’ve made a great choice for a number of reasons. Not only is Android a fantastic, open platform for
indie developers to build games for, but Unity also makes the process quick, easy, and enjoyable. Hopefully,
you’ll be surprised at just how easy it is to get something that looks quite professional up and running and to
share that with a huge audience of millions of users—for fun or for profit.
That said, I know that getting started with any kind of development can be daunting, especially if you’re
completely new to coding. That’s why this book walks you through every step in a simple and easy manner,
from setting up the development environment and installing all the necessary software, right down to
releasing the completed APK to the Google Play Store. You’ll learn the basics of programming with C#, as
well as how to design a game that people will actually enjoy playing. No prior experience required. Oh, and
we’ll take a brief look at virtual reality apps too, because that’s a subject that is super exciting.
Whether you plan to unleash the next big hit or are just looking for a creative outlet, Android
development with Unity has a lot to offer, and I hope you’ll find it as rewarding as I have. Android has
opened all kinds of doors for me and given me a wealth of great experiences and opportunities—including
the chance to write this book! I hope it will do the same for you.
