Digital Storytelling with Unity

This workshop is designed for artists/writers who are completely new to Unity but would like to learn the basics fast and uncover the potential - without worrying about writing code. Take a tour of the interface, then drive straight in and create a small interactive narrative-driven scene using free 3D models and an assortment of digital assets. Publish your output and take it home on a Flash drive.
