Unity in Action teaches you how to write and deploy games! You'll master the Unity toolset from the ground up, adding the skills you need to go from application coder to game developer. Based on Unity version 5.

Available as both a print book and e-book download from the publisher's website:

This book helps readers build successful games with the Unity game development platform. You will use the powerful C# language, Unity's intuitive workflow tools, and a state-of-the-art rendering engine to build and deploy mobile, desktop, and console games. Unity's single codebase approach minimizes inefficient switching among development tools and concentrates your attention on making great interactive experiences.

(You'll need to know how to program, in C# or a similar OO language. No previous Unity experience or game development knowledge is assumed.)

Oh and about the author: I'm a software engineer specializing in interactive media development. I work for Synapse Games and teach classes in game development at Columbia College Chicago.
