I've been wanting to create a mobile 2d game in unity3d and have been researching for hours only to find a ton of different plugins and a bunch of different methods. Is it viable to create a 2d game using gui textures because it seems like the simplest way with just using code to create the behavior for the textures? or do i really have to get and learn how to use plugins like orthello, sprite manager, itween, texture packer, etc..
I also heard that OnGui is too slow for mobiles so i won't use that.
would i be able to create a sprite sheet with texture packer, import it into unity, and then somehow create guitextures for each sprite? or do i have to have individual images that take up more drawcalls and whatnot...
I am a newb at 2d development, sorry.
