Installing Unity

Before you can start making amazing games, you’re going to need a game engine, and Unity is one of the best engines out there currently.

Step 1 is to download Unity:
In your search browser type in “download unity”

And then click on this link;

Here is the link: https://unity3d.com/get-unity/download

You’re going to want to download the Unity Hub

Step 2:
Once the Unity Hub is downloaded, open the file and install it to your hard drive. Once installed you’ll see an interface similar to this:

Unity may ask you to register or add an account if you haven’t done so already. This is something you should do, it’s free, and will come in handy when you want to take advantage of the Unity Asset Store.

Step 3:

Click on the Add button and select which Unity Editor version you’d like to install.

There’s lots of options to choose from, however, for now it might be best to just install the editor and Visual Studio (you can always add these extra tools later).

Agree to the License Agreement and you’re off to install Unity! (The install may take a few minutes)

Step 4:

If you haven’t registered an account with Unity you’re going to need to do so now.

This is where you can create a Unity ID if you don’t already have one. If you do, simply login here.
Activate new license!
Unity Personal is free so select that, and then choose which best describes you, are you a company that generates less than 100k a year, or just a hobbyist.

Navigate back to your projects tab.

Congrats! You now have Unity and are ready to get started on your GameDev journey!
