Unity3d is a very popular professional game development platform for creating 3d environments. Jibe is a platform that we’ve developed at ReactionGrid to allow anyone to deploy multiuser virtual worlds on the web that are built with Unity3d.
I’m not a professional 3d content creator, and I can barely script my way out of a paper bag. But I’ve managed to create my own Jibe world online. Learning Jibe and Unity3d is not insanely hard. Anyone can do it, really.
Which is precisely why I’ve started the Jibe and Unity3d Google Group. I’ll be posting my own experiences to the group and sharing resources that I’ve found very useful. Bring your questions and creative ideas. Let’s build a supportive and helpful community together!
And if you’d like to listen to a presentation I recently gave at VWBPE on the educational affordances of web-based virtual worlds, Jibe and Unity3d, please take a look at this video:
