Description

Scenes allow a game to load logic and assets associated with a specific scene, while keeping project content available across all scenes. A game can be made up of many scenes, each which contains a different part of the game (lobby, levels, etc.). The game provides a way for players to get from one scene to another.

The goal of this tutorial is to explain the scene system and how to use it, so that creators know how to use scenes in their games. The tutorial should be easy to understand and approachable for all skill levels.
