McDROID

  • Rocking music
  • Vast aresenal of kick ass weapons
  • Creative enermies.
  • Addictive gameplay that leaves you a sense of accomplishment.
  • High replayability due to persistence.

DISCLAIMER: I made the game :)



Spirituality

PROS:

  • You get to do some weird stuff.
  • Your perception and your mind expands.
  • You can heal yourself and others.
  • Intuitive thinking.
  • Acquire a new understanding of reality which may lead to a natural outlook on everything.
CONS:
  • Easy to lose your bearing.
  • Tendency to rationalize bullshit.
  • Encourages a certain laziness.
  • Highly unstable.
  • You get less and less help as you walk the path.
  • Can get VERY expensive in money, relationship and time.
CONCLUSION: Very fucking hard, not recommended.

Unity3d

PROS

  • Well lubed drag-and-drop asset pipeline.
  • Component based.
  • The API is well thought out.
  • Creative user community creating many well crafted plugins and assets.
  • Supports almost everything. Playing McDROID on your VW beetle's dashboard? Yes. You. Can.
CONS
  • Mono develop is slow on the latest SSD, and sucks in many other un-funny ways.
  • If you are an artist, the UI API will make you a very miserable person and will accelerate your aging.
  • Iteration cycles are a bit slow since you cannot type your code as you play (.NET scripts need to be compiled)
  • Can't bake navmesh at runtime (means if you want to do level editor in game, you need to use a third party nav API)
Conclusion: Get it, buy NGUI and arongranberg's A* pathfinder.
