A number of judges evaluated all of the impressive submissions to pick the winners of the latest Asset Store challenge: Use Substance Painter to texture stunning assets that expand the futuristic world of Buried Memories: Yggdrasil.
The Unity Asset Store strives to get top artistic talent to create amazing new assets that will help anyone generate higher-quality content. For this challenge, we asked solo designers or teams of two to create Yggdrasil-inspired props, environments, weapons or vehicles using Substance Painter for all textures. The entries were judged on technical quality (40%), artistic and creative quality (40%), and the use of Unity and Substance technologies (20%). The judges were from Unity, Substance (Allegorithmic), and a number of studios.
You’ve waited long enough, now here are the winners!

Pavel’s team spent over 300 hours creating a variety of environment modules and props with original designs. All assets are set and organized as a Prefab library and the package includes step-by-step documentation.
“I was impressed by the effort put into the level design storytelling, and the variety through the whole environment. Great lighting, as well. Congrats!” – Vincent Gault, Substance
Highlighting Unity’s HDRP and post-processing tools, most of the models use a mid-poly (with face-weighted normal) method using tiling textures and trim textures plus HDRP decals to add smaller details.
“Nice composition and lighting, and a very clever way to build a great scene, with the right elements.” – Vincent Gault, Substance
This package contains a mix of large-scale environment modular assets and unique props in sci-fi style as well as a playable two-scene cinematic demo. Most of the models are mid poly and use a normal baking technique for lightweight high quality.
“Love the movie and the lighting of this one! Everything is well balanced and gives this feeling to be in a vast environment.” – Vincent Gault, Substance
Again, all the winning and runner-up assets are available from the Unity Asset Store, the #1 source for game-ready art and tools.
