What types of game should I start making to get started with Unity 3D? Any ideas?

Remember: it should be small, and not art-intensive.

    \$\begingroup\$ -1, "what game should I make" isn't really a good question. Also for beginning games there's already a pretty thorough list here. gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/854/… \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ In any game engine a know gametype would be a good place to start. I have a few suggestions. 1) Pac-Man clone. 2) Space Invaders/Galaxy 3) Frogger 4) any other "basic" game that seems too simple always shows up to have enough for beginners. Try some of them first. Then you will learn a lot. If you dont know the games, use Youtube to learn about them. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 6 '11 at 0:13

Take one of the existing Unity example projects and modify it. This gives you a good solid base to work from.
