With so many interesting and varied projects being shared with us at any given moment, whether via direct tags or the #MadeWithUnity and #UnityTips hashtags, it can be hard to keep up with all that’s happening within our community. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this roundup of highlights that showcase everything you need to know about what the community got up to last month.
Each Monday, we celebrate a milestone hit by one of our creators. From new game launches to awards won, we are constantly in awe at your achievements!
Throughout August we celebrated the launch of Lost in Play by Happy Juice Games, the launch of As Dusk Falls by INTERIOR/NIGHT, and Dot's Home by Rise-Home Stories Project for winning big at the Games for Change Awards!
Tuesdays are dedicated to #UnityTips on Twitter, and last month Massive Monster, makers of Cult of the Lamb, took over @UnityGames to share tips on how to make your 2D Sprites work harder (1,2,3,4,5).
Some other great tips that were shared include Ehsan Ehrari’s quick and easy way to neaten up your workflow if your layers end up getting messy and Sunny Valley Studio’s tip on how to fix holes in your shadows.

We love seeing your works in progress, and each Friday we share the projects that have us searching for a playable demo.
