I wanted to start the challenge by learning Unity. My twin boys' favorite game is Crossy Road. They love the style, the animations, and the gameplay. I wanted to learn Unity and make them their own version of Crossy Road with them as playable characters. This was the first 7 days of my challenge.

I started by creating dynamically generated terrain and setting the camera angle so that it matches the look of Crossy Road. It literally took me 5 hours to get the camera angle just where I wanted it. It is not 100% like Crossy Road but it is close enough and my kids are 9, so they won't mind.

This is my first experience with Unity in the hopes that I could learn something new during COVID19 and have fun while I do it.
