Build your game

The build phase is where you put together everything you’ve created so far. This is where you import all your 3D models into the game engine, lay out levels, script gameplay, and optimize performance.

It’s important to keep testing the game as you build it, to make sure it’s fun to play. Ask people you trust to test your game and give you feedback. The ultimate goal is to make a fun experience that can be shared with other players.
