Here is our list of the Top 5 Best Free Assets on the Unity Store!
1. iTween – Free Unity Scripting Library.iTween is a free and feature-rich animation system for Unity. It is one of the first assets I personally add to a new game project. It grants you access to dozens of useful functions which help you animate the exposed (i.e. public) values of any component!
Let’s say you want to move an object along a path. One way to do that is to create waypoints (empty gameObjects) and then use iTween to move your object from one waypoint to the next. Here is an example of how simple this is to accomplish with the tween library:
2. ProBuilder Basic – Free Unity 3D Modeling Editor Extension.
Build the geometry of your game levels directly in the Unity editor! Whether you need to create a quick prototype of your game, or to go deep into world-building, ProBuilder Basic is capable and easy to use.
The fact that you are working in the Unity Editor and not inside an external program means you can play-test everything instantly. A huge time-saver and an awesome asset!
3. “Unity-chan!” Model – Free Unity 3D Character Model.
As far as characters go, the Kohaku Ootori Unity 3D model is one of the cutest and most skillfully designed on the Asset Store. Kohaki comes with 31 animations, 31 still poses, 12 Emotions making from blend shapes and beautiful textures and shaders.
You can use the cute 3D girl in your finished game or just as a nice model to look at in your prototype :).
4. Tanks! – Free Unity Sample Project – Tutorial.
Of all Unity Tutorial projects this one is my favorite – it is a great introduction to Game Planning, Physics, Inputs and Audio Mixing. And on top of that – the completed project is a fun little game for two players.
The idea is so good, that ever since I played it, I’ve wanted to create a published spin-off :). Download it, follow along the tutorial if you are new to Unity, or just use it as inspiration for your next game!
