New Video: “Physics in Five Lines”

Posted by & filed under Game Development, Tech, Training/Support, Videos.

We’ve been promoting the physics engine in Corona Game Edition, but how does it actually work, in concrete terms? How do you integrate it with familiar Corona code? This two-minute video, starring the humble crate, attempts to answer these questions: Of course, a crate is about the simplest possible case for a physics engine. But one test of a development tool is that simple tasks should be simple, and we think you’ll agree that we’ve accomplished that here.

Introductory Corona Tutorials from Burtons Media Group

Posted by & filed under Corona SDK, Tech, Training/Support, Videos.

In a recent blog entry, Dr. Brian Burton of Burtons Media Group compared a number of game engines for iPhone, iPad and Android, and concluded: “I have given this a LOT of thought. I’m regularly asked by my students and others which engine(s) I am using. For 2D development, I have decided to go with Corona. I like the platform and being able to develop for multiple systems at the same time.” Dr. Burton has also created some helpful tuturial videos for brand-new Corona developers: iPhone Game Development with Corona: Getting Started – Hello World Android Game Development with Corona: Getting Started Developing iPhone/iPad/Android Games with Corona: Working with Buttons If you’re new to Corona development, you should definitely give these a look!

Yes, more Corona training is on the way…

Posted by & filed under Training/Support.

In response to a frequently-asked question: we do plan on holding more (and longer) Corona training sessions, both in the SF Bay Area and in other parts of the country (New York, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, etc.) In the longer term, this will be done by our Authorized Training Partners, but in the short term we like to meet Corona users as often as we can! Also, we’re working on making additional training materials, such as books or videos, available to the wider Corona developer community.

Thank you to training attendees!

Thanks to all who came out for our first official Corona training session! The event was a big success, with a sold-out room and high marks from attendees, and explaining Corona to a bunch of brand-new users really helps us shape our SDK documentation.
