A large number of games are powered by Unity. Angry Birds Epic, Temple Run, Pokemon, Super Mario Run, My Friend Pedro, Monument Valley, and more. This cross-platform game engine is powerful yet easy to install, and free to boot. Anyone interested in game development should invest their time to learn Unity. It takes time to learn but eventually it will save a lot of time since you won’t have to make everything yourself for developing a game.
Compared to its rivals, Unity has a less steep learning curve. That means it is more welcoming for newcomers. Being a cross-platform software, Unity can be used to create games and experiences not just for PC, but also for iOS, Xbox, Android, and game console. It even has an impressive support for virtual reality devices like Oculus Rift.
Features and Highlights
Unity is a powerful game engine as well as an integrated development environment (IDE). Unity provides assets to be used in games, so game developers who use Unity doesn’t need to build every single asset from scratch.
There are tons of assets available in Unity since everyone can create and upload their owns to the “Asset Store”, allowing other developers to use their creations. If you need some beautiful effects or 3D models, or custom scripting solutions, but do not want to spend time to create them or do not know how to do it, go ahead to the store and you may find things that catch your attention. However, keep in mind that while many assets are royalty free, many others are not.
As an IDE, Unity provides a visual editor where you can manipulate the properties of the elements that you drag and drop into scenes. Visual Studio or other external code editor of your choice can also be used as the default code editor in Unity.
In the Unity editor, 2D and 3D modes are available, and you can switch between the two at any time. For example, if you start a project in 2D mode, and later you want to switch it to 3D mode, you can do so via the Editor Settings Inspector. Every time you switch the mode, some settings in the editor will change accordingly. The camera, for instance, will change from Orthographic to Perspective if you make a switch from 2D to 3D mode. Also, the Baked GUI will be disabled in 2D mode and enabled in 3D mode.
