Pick up some great games and stacks of great development tools with the Humble Unity Bundle.
Few things get ill-informed commenters more riled up than discussing game engines. There is a prevailing theory that Unity games are somehow worse than those created in Unreal Engine, or any number of custom engines. But also, that they’re better than those created in Game Maker, RPG Maker, or Twine. There’s a whole bizarre pecking order to it; it’s almost as if internet commenters have no idea what they’re talking about.
Let’s be clear: Unity is no better or worse than any other game engine. Game engines are tools and enablers, and morons tend to conflate democratised access and low cost of entry – and therefore, greater variety of games – with the “quality” of the tools in which they are made.
If you needed any evidence of just how good Unity games can be, you should check out the Humble Unity Bundle. There are some genuine gems in here, including Oxenfree, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and Wasteland 2. Wasteland 2! Don’t ever come around here talking smack about games made in Unity.
But more than just games, you’ll also find an assortment of tools, frameworks, and asset collections in the Humble Unity Bundle, should you want to pick up arms and prove the fools wrong yourself.
Here’s the full breakdown of all the tools and games included in the Humble Unity Bundle:
Pay $1 US or more (around £0.78) to unlock
- Inventory Pro
- UFPS: Ultimate FPS
- 10% off your first month of Humble Monthly
Pay more than the average (currently around $10 US or £7.77) to also unlock
- Final Station
- Last Day of June
- Realistic Effects Pack 4
- Ultimate Game Music Collection
- Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut
Pay $15 US (around £11.65) to also unlock
- Discover Unity Game Development – From Zero to 12 Games
- Heroic Fantasy Creatures Full Pack Volume 1
- Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun
- Torment: Tides of Numenera
- Universal Sound FX
- $2 credit for Humble Monthly subscribers
There are great games in there, sure, but some of the real value is in the tools. Gaia, the Unity terrain creation toolset, is already a steal at £47, but to get it – and all the other stuff – for the price of a couple of pints in our nation’s capital? It’s amazing.
The Humble Unity Bundle runs through until Tuesday, 18th September 2018, at 10am PT (6pm GMT). And of course, every penny spent on the bundle will earn money for worthwhile charities.
We may receive a small commission for purchases made from online stores.
