Made with Unity Monthly: February 2023 roundup

Curious how others are creating with Unity? Check out this roundup of the latest Made with Unity news and discover what the Unity community has been up to.

Milestone Monday

#MadeWithUnity games reached some exciting milestones in February.

To start, Intercept Games’ Kerbal Space Program 2 has been released in Early Access on Steam, if you’re looking for something out of this world. Ready to get your puzzle on? NAHUAL by Thirdworld Productions may be the quirky brainteaser you’ve been waiting for.

Congratulations to all of the games that won an Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences’ D.I.C.E. Award! As a follow up to last month’s finalists list, you can find the full list of winners in this IGN article. Esteemed Made with Unity winners include:

  • TUNIC, Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game
  • Marvel SNAP, Mobile Game of the Year
  • OlliOlli World, Sports Game of the Year

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

#UnityTips Tuesday

Tuesdays are dedicated to #UnityTips on Twitter. Here are a couple we found particularly helpful in February:

Keep tagging us using the #UnityTips hashtag.

#MadeWithUnity Friday

We're stunned by what you all create every week, and you certainly kept the amazing projects coming in February. If we missed something from you, be sure to use the #MadeWithUnity hashtag next time you share.

Twitter’s @cptnsigh gave us all virtual whiplash with a strikingly smooth fast-paced FPS, and @canopy_studio healed our whiplash with a relaxing waterfall. Then, we snuck around with a bow and arrow and completed puzzles in @CatthiaGamesCynthia: Hidden in the Moonshadow. Finally, @PhillipWitz's adorable frog showed off its new skating skills.

On Instagram, @papetura warmed our cups with a dose of fiery cuteness, and now we’re certainly ready for Spring thanks to @Studio_unjenesaisquoi, @umanimation1, and @focus_entmt. @Cornf_blue went super speed with some insane parkour and @JfvmYt was busy expanding their castle!

We’re so excited for the #MadeWithUnity year ahead (and GDC 2023 later this month), so keep adding the hashtag to your posts to show us what you’ve been up to.

Live events
Creator Spotlights

Following the wrap of Global Game Jam 2023, we took to Twitch for a Let’s Play stream that saw members of our team play a selection of 10 games created during the event and solicited from the community.

Later in the month, we sat down with Whales and Games to discuss Townseek in an all-new Creator Spotlight stream. Then, we released another Creator Spotlight clip (above) on the use of timeline in As Dusk Falls. And finally, as a callback to the 2022 Let’s Dev 101 session on animation, we posted the full stream to YouTube.

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

Dev Blitz Days

On February 23, we hosted our second Dev Blitz Day of the year, focusing on scripting. The event was held in both the forums and on the Discord server. Throughout the day, we had more than 100 threads and would like to thank everyone who participated.

Keep an eye on our forum announcements and Discord for updates about future Dev Blitz Days.

Unity Asset Store

Just because you're a “one-person team” doesn’t mean you can’t call in extra help! Check out how Thomas Sala, creator of The Falconeer, was able to fill in skill gaps using assets from the Unity Asset Store. Assets were able to take the game to another level – from adding realism to gameplay to localizing in 13 different languages. Similarly, here are three more stories from studios that were able to save time and money by using assets.

Taking to social media, here's a roundup of some of our favorite creator showcases from Twitter in February:

Don’t forget to tag the @AssetStore Twitter account and use the #AssetStore hashtag when posting your latest creations.
