Happy Saturday everyone! This week in Acem Gaming we released some new tutorials on C#, Oculus Rift, and Unity 5.6 as well as finishing up our Robo Recall series, continuing our Lucky's Tale series, and starting a new series in Minecraft!
This week for tutorials we covered dictionaries and delegates in C#, the ColliderDistance2D component, and how to set-up the camera GUI for the Oculus Rift. The delegates tutorial will be a gateway to event based programming which we will learn about next week. You can do a lot of cool things with events and I highly recommend learning how to use them for games. The Oculus Rift tutorial will teach you how to set-up a GUI for your camera. I put a lot of work into it and making a text version which can be followed on my website. The 5.6 tutorial on ColliderDistance2D & Distance will teach you how to use the new component included with Unity 5.6 and how to use it to find the distance of colliders in your scene.

Next week for tutorials we will be moving on to event based programming with the topic of events. The tutorial will extend what we learned in Delegates, and allow us to set-up a system which utilizes them. We will also learn how to work with files in C#. We'll focus on one file type and future tutorials will cover other files types. We'll also continue our Oculus Rift tutorial with interacting with objects in VR. The tutorial will provide a good grasp on interacting with objects so that in future tutorials we can actually use them. Finally, we will learn how to use the new sorting group component introduced with Unity 5.6. We are approaching the end of the 5.6 tutorials. There may be a break between 5.6 tutorials so that I can master a few of the new systems before releasing tutorials on them.

Acem Gaming Game Development News
This week for game development I've been focusing on learning how to use substance painter and programming a few of AIs for my VR game. I've also been working on creating a task list with associated time for my VR game so that I can come up with a timeline for when I can expect it to be finished. I will also probably release a demo game to my website and possibly a mobile version as well. I'll keep you posted with updates for it as I make them.

Acem Gameplay News
This week for Acem Gameplay we finished our series on Robo Recall and took down the final boss Odin. It was a pretty intense level to finish on, and I look forward to making a few more videos in Robo Recall once I finish up some of the challenges. I've continued the Lucky's Tale series and will be finishing up the main series next week. This week I introduced a new series on Minecraft in VR, and have had fun playing it, but don't know how many more videos I will do in it. It is pretty interesting to see how all of the mechanics work in VR, and if I can think of enough stuff to do in the videos I will keep doing them. Next week i'll be starting a new Gameplay series and will be excited to bring you new content. Let me know if you would rather it be commentary or naw.

Not too much has been going on with Unity this week. More articles on getting ready for the VR Summit on May 1-2. There is also one on the FPS tool that comes with the Accelerator pack you can get with getting a Unity Plus subscription. It's a pretty cool tool for getting ramped up on FPS controls.

That's all I have for this week. I will be extremely busy in the next few weeks so you may see a decrease in the amount of tutorials that I release. This weekend I am going to try to prerecord as many videos as possible so that I can keep my normal release schedule. Let me know if you have any suggestions for things that need to be changed or things that you would like to see. Hope you have a great weekend.
