Introducing the Malta Unity User Group!

Malta Unity User Group logo

We are starting a local group for Unity users and developers to exchange ideas, share experiences and help each other create awesome games using Unity.

We are having our very first meet on Tuesday 2nd December at 6:30pm, and it is going to be a very special kick off event as we will be joined by Unity's own Andy Brammall, Alex McCredie and Andy Touch who will be telling us all about Unity 5!

We also have some great content lined up from yours truly (Pixie Software), 5¼ Games and Codemasters for a jam packed evening of game development goodness!

We shall be meeting at the Microsoft Innovation Center Malta at SkyParks in Luqa. The fine folks over there are generously hosting us at their premises.

More details to come soon!

The group is open to everyone! You don’t need to be a Unity expert to attend. Whether you are still a beginner or an experienced Unity user, come and join us.

Breaking radio silence

It's been a while since our last post, but sometimes we find ourselves juggling so many different things that we get sidetracked. So it's about time we gave you some updates.

February and March saw us hard at work on an update for Trail of the Treasure Snatcher. It is now one step closer to our vision for this game. We will keep working on it throughout the coming months.

We've also been making a lot of progress on our new game, Toon Merge, which is currently in pre-alpha. Technically speaking, this game isn't officially announced yet and we don't really want to say all that much about it before we have something a bit more tangible and presentable in hand. We're very close, but we're not there just yet. Soon though...so keep an eye out.

Whilst planning the next PixieWorkshop sessions, in light of the upcoming University and MCAST "exam season", we decided to skip these next couple of months and schedule something later on. We'll keep you informed on any confirmed details via this website and through our social media channels.

Guess that's all for now. We'll try to post updates a bit more frequently. There will definitely be lots to say about Toon Merge over the coming weeks, so until then...

48 Hour Cardboard and Beyond

We hope you can join us during our next PixieWorkshops session where Kvasir Games will be sharing their experience of making board games in 48 hours during the Nordic Game Jam 2012, the board game scene and forming a games company.

Kvasir Games are a board game company registered in Denmark made up of 5 former international students of the IT University of Copenhagen. They have just released their latest game, Wanted: Igor! to the public last week, so we’re sure that they’ll have lots of interesting stuff to share with us.

48 Hour Cardboard and Beyond is being held on Friday, 21st February between 6:30pm and 7:30pm at the Microsoft Innovation Center.

As usual, attendance is completely free of charge but please register if you would like to attend.
