Thursday 29th March 2012 saw the tenth London Unity Usergroup, and a fantastic talk by Tom Betts. Tom specialises in procedural and generative development, and his talk is described as below -

Procedural / Generative / Modular – Grow Yourself a Game

tom betts nullpointer London Unity Usergroup talk
When programmer art sucks and real artists do everything with ten million polys, how can a lone coder get anything done! In this talk Tom shows how a procedural & generative methods can help drive content production and game design in engines like Unity. Tom will show a number of his own projects and prototypes where modular and generative design have helped overcome the problems of content production.

Tom Betts, aka Nullpointer, is an artist, academic, coder and gamer. He’s been a lecturer, designer, published musician, professional artist, warlock…. but right about now he is working on his Phd about the sublime in digital games and he’s also head coder at Big Robot where he has worked on a game for Channel4, his own puzzler Avseq and future releases, hunted/lodestone . Hes exhibited digital artworks and performed at international venues such as Sonar, ZKM, Lovebytes, FACT and has done professional design/coding for Tate, the V&A and the Southbank Centre. He likes code, shambling music, drinking coffee, watching films where nothing much happens and is trying to grow a beard.

Nice.
And don’t forget the interactive fluids surfaces and destructible geometry for the next unity 3D release.
