Game developer’s guide to graphical projections (with video game examples), Part 1: Introduction - This article series explains one of the fundamentals of drawing: how to draw three-dimensional things correctly. It’s an essential skill for artists, but it’s also a great first topic for coders that want to get started with art. Even better, we’ll learn it all by simply looking at video games (scroll to ‘Types of graphical projections’ if you’re antsy).

Unpredictably fun: The value of randomization in game design - Learn how to inject randomization into your game to keep players engaged and eager for the next scene.

Check out the e-book for more on how to prototype, craft, and test gameplay in Unity.

The most useful Game Dev links I know (Updated) - Hi, I'm Uno. 10 months ago, I made a list of the resources I found, to help broadcast these tools & knowledge to other gamedevs. Since then it has nearly tripled in length, reaching over 500 links. To help improve readability, I've separated the sheet into two main lists (one for tools that can be used, one for reading and learning). I've also added several new categories (Writing, Optimization, Maths, and more).

How To Write A Custom URP Shader With DOTS Instancing Support - I wanted to enhance the look of my boids BatchRendererGroup (BRG) sample with more suitable meshes instead of cubes. For that I decided to use a custom shader with some simple procedural vertex animation. For me, who hasn’t worked with URP or HDRP in production, this turned out to be quite a journey. So I am sharing the solution so you don’t have to spend your time.

Unity3D - EditorGUILayout Arrays - The EditorGUILayout class provides many features in order to create custom editors, but they sadly lack the simple feature to display arrays. This project aims at preserving the same usage method as the EditorGUILayout functions, so you using it won't be anything too different. In the editor, the array will behave exactly like the original Unity array fields.

Game Spotlight

Adv3ntur3 - You found a weird un-finished Atari 2600 cartridge. Seems to be a clone of the famous Atari 2600 game 'Adventure' but with procedural maps.

The only things you know about this cartridge are written in an internet blog by a guy named "the atari detective", it seems like the game is linked to a series of kid disappearances.

Even knowing the risk, you still can't resist the urge to play...
