You’ve been plugging away in Unity for a few weeks and you want to get done your game today? It’s time to check out these essential Unity assets that can speed your development along and get you finished your game today! I won’t be focusing on characters as those tend to steal attention and if your characters look like everyone else’s your players are going to know. No, instead I’m focussing on the little things in your game that you can rely on assets for and not compromise your game’s “look!”

When you’re less focused on designing terrain for each individual area, you focus more on creating more levels and content for your game. If your player has more to explore, they’ll go tell their friends how much fun your game was. This pack contains several different tilesets that will help you create a world that your players can’t wait to explore. Check it out!

This is the first of two GUI sets that I’m covering in this list. While you don’t need both of them, having either can cut down your work on your GUI. This UI kit is geared mostly towards the casual game market, but depending on your game’s feel it may still fit. You need to check this package out and compare it to the other assets you’ve made or bought, to determine if this is a good fit for your game.

Here is the other GUI pack that I’m going to recommend. This pack, while still fitting with most games even if they are more cartoony, can also be used with a variety of other game styles and genres. Between the two of these packs, you will be able to use one of them with your game and any other project you can imagine. Remember that you can use these packs in more than one game you develop for Unity. These become a longer-term investment in your game development career.
