‘Tis once again the season of Christmas surprises, and if you thought last year was awesome - The Devdog elves have once again spent the whole year making sure there will be plenty of presents in stock for Unity gamedevs this year!
On December 1st, we’re launching the third edition of the largest Christmas Giveaway Calendar the Unity game development community has ever seen.
This year, we have over 50 sponsors and over 1000 gifts, ranging from Unity Award winning Assets, to Nordic Game Jam 2020 tickets and much more!
Yes, it is literally a daily Christmas Giveaway for Unity game developers with a prize pool of over $60,000!
This year we are excited to have Game Analytics come along side as a co-sponsor. Be sure to check out the amazing new product they just launched called Benchmarks+ where you can view market trends for 1 billion monthly players!
Every day of December leading up to Christmas Day on the 25th, we will be sending out early Christmas presents via e-mail from the awesome sponsors to the lucky winners.
This means you can win game industry conference tickets, Unity Asset Store assets such as Bolt, NG Tools Pro, uScript Professional, Corgi Engine, and Odin among other amazing gifts, every single day.
Head over to the Unity Christmas Giveaway Calendar website to participate now.
You signup to the Devdog newsletter using your e-mail to join the event.
Each day, we draw a set of winners among the participants. The winners are contacted directly via e-mail.
Every participant will receive a daily e-mail from December 1st until December 25th, outlining who won and what you can win tomorrow.
Yes, you read that correctly, Mars! Check out this super cool story about one of our long time sponsors, Alchemy Studios' Matteo Bosi. Matteo has already been accepted to have his music sent to Mars and this #UnityChristmas we can vote to get Matteo's music back to Earth and be a part of history.
Odin puts your Unity workflow on steroids, making it easy to build powerful user-friendly editors for you and your entire team.
With an effortless integration that deploys perfectly into pre-existing workflows, Odin allows you to serialize anything and enjoy Unity with 80+ new inspector attributes, no boilerplate code and so much more!
Prior to Devdog, I ran an online games industry news media for and about Nordic game developers for nearly two years.
During that time, I often reached out to new game developers directly, apart from interviewing the ones who sent a press release directly to me.
A few weeks ago, we bought a Unity Asset that really let us down.
In developing our own assets, we spend a lot of time on the Asset Store, researching the market and getting inspired.
Item Collections in Inventory Pro are powerful collections that can contain items, stack, unstack, merge items and much, much more.
As we'll soon see, however, these features aren't only useful when creating a traditional RPG inventory system, but can be used in many aspects of your game.
We're a developer and publisher of best-in-class tools and asset for the Unity game engine. We develop and sell but also publish products like Odin for talented developers and artists around the world.
