May saw plenty of exciting games created with Unity share the spotlight.
To start, Riot Forge and Double Stallion Games released CONV/RGENCE: A League of Legends Story™, taking us through the streets of Zaun, while tha ltd.’s Humanity put the fate of humankind in our paws. The month also saw Tuatara Games’s hilarious Bare Butt Boxing finally become available in early access, then Plot Twist Games sent us looking for clues in The Last Case of Benedict Fox (below).
We share new game releases and milestone spotlights every Monday on the @UnityGames Twitter and @unitytechnologies Instagram. Be sure to give us a follow and support your fellow creators.
Like every month, we were lucky to have another developer take over our Twitter channel to share their best #UnityTips. For May, @samyam_youtube shared a variety of tricks – from pixel art in Unity to simple keyboard shortcuts. Some highlights include:
Keep tagging us and using the #UnityTips hashtag to share your expertise with the community.
We continue to be stunned by what Unity creators make week to week, and you certainly kept the amazing projects coming in May. If we missed something that you meant to tag us in, be sure to use the #MadeWithUnity hashtag next time.
On Twitter, @EvaBalikova was busy creating some beautiful embroidered art (see above), and @DevFatigued’s little caterpillar friend was on a jumping journey.
Meanwhile on Instagram, @ShimpleShrimp was in full focus underwater, and Mr. Mustard Games’s (@MrMustardGames on Twitter) robot couldn’t resist smashing some boxes. Finally, @kng_ghidra traveled through different dimensions, and we ended the month with chill skateboarding vibes from @stokedslothinteractive.
Finally, for a bit of bonus content, Project Ferocious dev Leo Saalfrank spoke with Shacknews on YouTube about using Unity to the fullest. (For a Ferocious throwback, head to our GDC 2021 showcase for a peek at the WIP.)
We’re always here to continue the #MadeWithUnity love. Keep adding the hashtag to your posts to show us what you’ve been up to.
On May 25, we hosted a Graphics Dev Blitz Day, covering topics like global illumination, shaders, SRP, URP, HDRP, GfxDevice, texturing, and more. The event was held in both the forums and on the Discord server. Throughout the day, we had more than 150 threads with 49 experts answering questions, and we’d like to thank everyone who participated.
May really took things up a notch on Twitch with the continuation of our Scope Check Let’s Dev series, releasing parts four, five, and six. We also took time to stream a Creator Spotlight showcasing Thomas Waterzooi’s Please, Touch The Artwork (watch above).
