Overview
Summary
Take your first steps in Unity... inside Unity! Our Interactive Tutorial system is a panel inside Unity that teaches you and responds as you learn. These introductory lessons aim to get you familiar with the Unity interfaces and concepts such as Game Objects and Components. You will fix parts of a top down 3D puzzle game and help your character escape each level, learning Unity development as you go.
