Made with Unity Monthly: April 2023 roundup

The world is a better place with more creators in it, and this roundup is proof. Keep reading to discover the latest news about games made with Unity and find out how the community is using Unity.

Milestone Monday

April saw no short of activity from games created with Unity.

To start, Free Lives brought some fresh air with Terra Nil’s release, and Endnight Games’s terrifying Sons of the Forestearly access launch has us hungry for the full release. Next, Riot Forge launched the highly anticipated The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story, and Sankari Studios released KATOA, a game leading to real-world ocean conservation efforts, for Earth Day.

Rounding out creator milestones for the month were RavazSydney, who put out the official announcement for The Explorator, and Black Salt Games’s fishing horror DREDGE, which was released to rave reviews. Finally, a whole new batch of mystery cases came to players’ doors with ColePowered Games’s early access launch of Shadows of Doubt.

On our end, we were thrilled to announce the 2023 Unity for Humanity Grant winners this month. We were also honored to have been chosen as “best” in three categories at this year’s PocketGamer awards.

We share new game releases and milestone spotlights every Monday on the @UnityGames Twitter account. Be sure to give us a follow and support your fellow creators.

#UnityTips Tuesday

Keeping the fun going, April showers bring… #UnityTips! Tuesdays are always dedicated to tips on Twitter, and last month was no exception. One great resource that was shared was @alexandermeye’s huge water shader tutorial (see below).

Some additional highlights included @SunnyVStudio’s super useful tip to convert Screen space to World space, and @NickyBoccuzzi’s takeover of the @UnityGames Twitter to share some animation tips.

Keep tagging us and using the #UnityTips hashtag to share your expertise with the community.

#MadeWithUnity Friday

We continue to be stunned by what Unity creators make week to week, and you certainly kept the amazing projects coming in April. If we missed something that you shared, be sure to use the #MadeWithUnity hashtag next time.

On Twitter, @TinyDodoGames had a nice technique to keep the monsters at bay (see above), and @pointnsheep got us in the mood for a sword fight. We also took a peaceful vacation on @OneiraGames’s colorful coral island.

On Instagram, @MajorMcDoom displayed some adorable penguin VR, and @Cyanilux showed us how to add milk to our tea. We also got to practice our mid-air combos with @DivineStudi0s and @DevFatigued had us jumping around.

We’re so excited to continue the #MadeWithUnity love, so keep adding the hashtag to your posts to show us what you’ve been up to.

Twitch streams

Coming out of GDC, April was all about playing and making games on Twitch. To start, we kicked off a Scope Check Let’s Dev series – catch parts one, two, and three in the archives now. Next came a Let’s Play session with ColePowered Games’s just-released Shadows of Doubt (see above).

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitch and hit the notification bell so you never miss a stream.

Unity Asset Store

Did you know that the Unity Asset Store has an Affiliate program? If you’re a content creator and love talking about assets, you might be a great fit. Check out this video from YouTube’s @samyam and learn how you can make income from the Asset Store without creating assets.

Taking things to social media, here’s a roundup of some of our favorite creator showcases from Twitter in April:

Don’t forget to tag the @AssetStore Twitter account and use the #AssetStore hashtag when posting your latest creations. And keep your eyes peeled for upcoming sales (hint: this month).
