Successful game creation requires a delicate balance of technical skill, creative thinking, and relentless drive. This process can be arduous, with a variety of ever-changing factors to consider. That’s why our latest Mega Bundle Sale serves to support your next prototyping endeavor.
Video game prototyping helps you develop a decisive vision for the exact kind of project you want to put forth – even in its earliest phases. From special systems to tactical tools, you can now save up to 95% on bundled assets for faster iteration time, right through to the end of the month. These curated collections include powerful prototyping packs, and even more in our Tier 3 Mega Bundle with 17 assets for just $19.99.

Every journey begins with a single step, so let’s start with Footstep System from popular publisher, Invector. This system allows you to leverage unique footstep sounds based on the material or texture that your characters stand on – so they can jump, hop, and skip as you wish.
We’ve also included Medieval Farm Tools, a pack that’s bound to accelerate your prototyping. Simply populate a scene with basic props and objects until you’re ready to replace them later on with your own custom artwork.
The final foundational asset is Easy State. This real dev tool provides a more flexible visual editor for state machines that is highly configurable, so devs like you can create complex behaviors quickly and efficiently, before moving on to the next task.
Effective prototyping means refining your focus on the fun parts of game development, rather than fiddling with time-consuming details that don’t really matter at this stage. As such, we’ve included Modular Sci-Fi Weapons and PBR Modular Mechs v3. Modular assets are more easily customizable, so you can actually extract parts of the whole and then reintegrate them as you see fit.
As alluded to earlier, audio is another crucial component of prototyping. To ensure that you get a sense of the game’s eventual ambiance, we’ve included Gun and Explosion Sounds. Don’t just blow things up – hear the destruction as it occurs.
And for those of you working on 2D games, BulletPro – 2D Projectile Workspace serves to fine-tune the movement, appearance, and behavior of bullets in your prototype. This way, you can make people think that you spent way too much time coding the mechanics of your bullets… and we won’t tell them otherwise.
Let’s face it, we want you to discover all of these great publishers and their assets. That’s why we went ahead and added 10 more packs to this full bundle, so you can become a prototyping powerhouse.
For instance, you can build a world for your prototype or utilize the high-quality demo scenes from environment packs like Nature Package – Forest Environment and Top-Down Dungeons II. Then polish off your natural 3D world with Enviro Lite – Sky and Weather and Snow VFX.
While you’re at it, why not add some dynamic movement to your characters, NPCs, and enemies with solid selections like Easy Character Movement and Melee Warrior Animations? These will prompt you to get going without wasting time on your setup. Oh, and we didn’t forget about the bad guys out there: Be sure to check out Enemy Vision – Patrol and Line of Sight, so your rivals can keep watch as they try to stop your hero’s success.
Looking to further fill up your asset library? No problem. With nearly 500 prefabs and over 150 effects, Spells Pack gives you an array of awesome options for testing out game mechanics with visual appeal.
Moreover, Classic RPG GUI brings a drag-and-drop GUI system directly to your project. While you’ll definitely replace it with your own GUI later on, this one should do the trick to temporarily replace those boring white buttons as a placeholder.
Then there’s Filo – The Cable Simulator. Whether you design an entire gameplay loop around this asset, or use it to make your prototype stand out, you’ll want to harness its ability to add realistic physics simulations of 3D cable-driven systems.
Prototyping, much like brainstorming, is about letting your ideas flow, so you can work efficiently from what feels intuitive. Capitalize on the tools and art available to you today, knowing full well that you’ll replace them with your own systems and content later on. The latest bundles expedite this effort, so you can rapidly reach your aims.
The Prototype your Project Mega Bundle Sale is on now through August 31 at 23:59:59 pm PT. It’s time to fast-forward to the fun part.
