About UniKnowledge 2

UniKnowledge 2 is very similar to the last UniKnowledge. The concept is the same: develop a sample game project and document the development. You can comment the code, create a tutorial, record videos and video-tutorials... it's up to you. The best entry wins, and by best entry we mean the entry that teaches most.

However, UniKnowledge 2 has a theme. The sample game must be a vehicle-oriented game, meaning that you can teach people how to make a good kart racing game, or a dogfight game, or a motocross game... etc.


How it works

This contest consists of, basically, building an easy-to-understand and well-documented sample game project for Unity users. You don't need to worry about media, you can just use primitives and/or prototype media. The important thing is that you finish the game prototype and teach well: from brainstorming, to game logic and programming. The objective here is to develop the best sample project, not the best game. This means that you have to:

  • Focus on the gameplay structure of the project
  • Make it playable. Play the prototype yourself and see if it plays good, smoothly
  • Explain everything you did, and how to reproduce that
  • You can use everything to aid the teaching process: videos, presentations, images, etc.
  • Comment your code!
  • Explain how and why things work

The best projects will be voted by a board of judges. I will invite and announce the judges later on. If you are interested in being a judge, just contact me. The criteria will be:

  • How well the project was presented
  • How well the projects plays
  • How documented the project is
  • How accessible the information is
  • How easy to use, understand and learn from, the sample is
