I’m new to Unity, and would like to make a simple platformer game to get more familiar with the engine. However, I’ve had trouble getting the standard assets controller to work, and all the tutorials I’ve found are fairly outdated.
As long if you don’t go below tutorials that use unity 4.5 or lower you are fine. Yes, some things may have changed but the basics stay the same.
Another thing you could do is to use the search options in google to get more recent results.
