It’s the most wonderful time of the year to discover something new. Spark your creativity with stellar Lightning Deals at up to 90% off, plus over 500 bestsellers at half price.
Fully rigged and ready to go, assets provide approachable solutions to speed up development and improve the quality of your build. So to keep you creating through the cold months, we’re kicking off Black Friday a little early – and letting it run late – from November 15 to December 4. Grab what you need to get to the fun part fast, from a selection of top-rated tools and stunning art packs at 50% off. And for the first time ever, we’re launching gone-in-a-flash Lightning Deals: Limited-quantity assets up to 90% off for a limited time.
You might be wondering: How do Lightning Deals actually work? Well, starting today, a new and super time-sensitive deal will drop every three hours throughout the Black Friday event. Check the Sale section of the Asset Store, or use the Lightning Deals filter, to stay on top of these speed rounds.
During the Lightning Deal period, the first 20 asset licenses will be available at 90% off, followed by 50 additional licenses at 80% off, then another small batch at 70% off. Note that you can’t add Lightning Deal assets to your cart to buy later. You must act swiftly and purchase right away using the “Buy Now” button (they’re called Lightning Deals for a reason).
Already feeling some FOMO? Don’t stress! New Lightning Deals will launch every three hours, one after another. This means that, no matter where you are in the world, or what time zone you’re working with, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a series of flash sales.
And while we can’t give away the full lineup of Lightning Deal assets that will drop over the course of our Black Friday extravaganza (where’s the fun in that?), we can say that POLYGON Dungeon Realms, CCG Kit, Modern Loft Full Pack, Total Music Collection, Match 3 Sweet Sugar, and Expanse – Volumetric Skies, Clouds, and Atmospheres in HDRP are going to make a striking impression.
Nothing gives your project a boost like time-saving tools that enable new game features. Now, you can grab some of the most popular tools at half price, part of our Black Friday event.
Start by saving over $140 on Gaia Pro 2021 – Terrain and Scene Generator, a must-have tool for generating realistic landscapes, and so much more. A staple on the Asset Store, Gaia Pro offers years of dedicated development and steadfast support, paired with a large and vibrant community.
User “mroshaw” writes in their review, “As a complete and utter newcomer to Unity, Gaia was a bit of a ‘splurge’ to say the least. My kids and I wanted to put together a little game, I wanted to learn Unity, [and] we all found terrain creation to be really quite tedious! I picked up Gaia on a whim, and despite [its] steep learning curve, as a complete Unity beginner, it’s really worth every penny.”
Another Asset Store favorite, Amplify Shader Editor, supports all render pipelines – bringing high-quality visual scripting to your shader flow. Shaders are hard to develop, and writing them is vastly different from coding C#. Thankfully, tools like Amplify Shader Editor enable you to create powerful shaders visually, without writing a single line of code.
But don’t take our word for it. Asset Store user “Armynator” writes: “Can't do anything wrong here. It’s a really fast visual shader editor with a ton of functions. It works for all render pipelines, has more features than Shader Graph, and is even a bit faster (and less buggy). It’s also frequently updated and comes with detailed documentation [that] includes many examples. This asset is pretty much a must-have by now.”
On that note, be sure to check out Amplify Bundle, which includes Amplify Shader Editor, in addition to the Amplify Impostors and Amplify LUT packs, at an even bigger discount.
With over 500 assets on sale (not to mention the Lightning Deals), there are just too many great tools to list here. But if you’re new to Unity, get your game off the ground with A* Pathfinding Project Pro, Bakery – GPU Lightmapper, MegaFiers – 2, and Corgi Engine – 2D + 2.5D Platformer.
You don’t need to be an expert to add quality models, animation, textures, sound effects, or even music to your project. Whether you’re a new coder who’s always envisioned making games, or a seasoned power user who dreams in C#, now’s the time to transform simple prototypes into eye-catching works of art, and create magnificent visuals that match your game’s aesthetic.
Get going with Mountain Environment – Dynamic Nature, a new package from well-known environment art team, Nature Manufacture.
It’s no secret that all of us at the Asset Store continue to be blown away by the quality of projects created by passionate people like you. From indies to AAA studios, it’s rewarding to see creators leverage powerful tools and prototyping art to bring one-of-a-kind ideas to life.
