Unity Asset Store – 100 Free Assets in my New Unity Asset Store Guide

June 25, 2013 Leave a comment

Coming up with a good game idea is not the hard part for many  people putting together their first game on a budget. The real challenge can often be found in the creation of the content for your game.

Creating environments, characters and props can be a very time consuming and technical challenging and is often a major reason why many games never see the light of day. I have compiled list of over 100+ free assets from Unity’s incredible Asset Store that will help you worry less about content and allow you to focus more attention on actually building your game. The list includes characters, environments, props, vehicles, vegetation, textures, music, full Unity game projects and animations. I also included a link for those of you out there looking to contribute content to the Asset Store for free or for profit!

Hope you enjoy!

Unity Sunsetting Flash

As of today, Unity will stop selling Flash deployment licenses but will continue to support their existing Flash customers throughout the 4.x cycle.

In an announcement posted on the Unity blog, the article cited the following reasons for the decision:

  1. We don’t see Adobe being firmly committed to the future development of Flash. This is evidenced by the cancellation of Flash Player Next, the instability of recent Flash Player versions and by Adobe’s workforce moving on to work on other projects.
  2. By introducing, and then abandoning, a revenue sharing model, Adobe eroded developers’ (and our) trust in Flash as a dependable, continuously improving platform.
  3. Developers are moving away from Flash, and while Flash publishing has gotten little traction, our own Unity Web Player has seen unprecedented growth in recent months (now installed on over 200M computers and already installed by 1/3 of all Facebook gamers).
