Game #10: "Space Shooter"

Today we are starting our final Game #10. This time we are doing something very different, switching roles. Liz will be writing the code and I will be making the art. The idea behind the switch is that by understanding each others workflows we will work more effectively as a team.

Our goals are quite simple. Liz is going to learn the basics of Unity by making 3 tutorial games. I am going to learn the basics of Blender by making a new ship and new asteroids for the Space Shooter tutorial game. I expect this to be fun but difficult. Even using the pen tablet isn't trivial. I would love to spend more time learning to make art and the art tools (Illustrator, Clip Art Studio), but for now a week is enough.
