Develop a simple 2D Multiplayer Game in Unity

Hey,

I'm currently learning about Unity here on Treehouse. I want to build a simple 2D Multiplayer Arena Fighter that I can play then with some friends and so on.

Is Multiplayer a hard topic, or can I realise such a project, without having so much experience with Unity?

Are you talking about online multiplayer?

Bruce, multiplayer is definitely something that you could integrate into your game. Unity even has built-in multiplayer integration functionality in 5.3 and 5.4. If you want to use a separate service, there are plenty of free packages on the asset store designed for many different purposes. Good luck, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
