Congratulations to all the Unity nominees and winners at the 27th annual DICE Awards. Cocoon won Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game, and What the Car? was awarded Mobile Game of the Year. In total, there were over 20 games nominated that were created with Unity. This is incredibly impressive and a testament to the innovation and creativity within our developer community.

LEGO® Builder’s Journey from Light Brick Studios

Earlier this month, Apple launched the highly anticipated Apple Vision Pro. Some of the very first spatial computing experiences available for the device are made with Unity, including the critically acclaimed LEGO® Builder’s Journey from Light Brick Studios and TRIPP, a VR meditation app recognized by Time Magazine as one of the best inventions of 2022.  For those itching to kick off the new year with new games, check out Steam’s Top New Releases from December. It featured six games made with Unity: Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, Disney Dreamlight Valley, Arizona Sunshine 2, Against the Storm, Steamworld Build, and House Flipper 2. Alternatively, if you’re just looking to play a game that everyone else is playing, Rust, Lethal Company and Unturned continue to make their mark on Steam’s most-played games chart.*

Cookie Cutter Creator Spotlight

In video and streaming, we started the year off with an in-depth look at Cookie Cutter, a hand-drawn 2D Metroidvania. We spoke with the creators, Subcult Joint to hear how they used 2D animations, Sprite Sheets, lights and more to build this unique beat-em-up. 

For our next creator spotlight, we talked to the developers at Dumativa and Cellbit on their latest game, Enigma of Fear, and how they built this 3D pixel art horror game in Unity’s Universal Render Pipeline (URP). 

Finally, if you’re keen on keeping a pulse on some of the best and brightest up-and-coming developers, our education team spent nearly two hours playing through winning and nominated games from the Best Student Project category in our 15th Annual Unity Awards.  

There were also some great highlights from our Unity Insiders. Here’s a roundup of the top content from some of your favorite community voices:

Dilmer: Speaking of Apple Vision Pro, Dilmer (@Dilmerv) gave his first impressions of the device from a developer’s perspective.  

Turbo Makes Games: Johnny from Turbo Makes Games (@TurboMakesGames) teams up with Dani Anderson, a software engineer at Unity, to do a DOTS-centric livestream series. You can catch the first episode here

SpeedTutor: For an in-depth overview of the new changes to the Input System, be sure to check out this tutorial form Speedtutors (@SpeedTutor). He starts by installing the system and showing you how to set up your first action map, then guides you through scripting a manager script and creating your own 3D and 2D character controllers, complete with practical examples.
