A lot of Unity-specializing teams want to get into developing games, but many of them are stuck without someone to take care of the art. Sure, they make some 2D games that utilize simple polygons like 2048 or Tetris, but the lack of a art specialist is rather troublesome for a team that wants to create an actual game world.閱讀全文〈A Unity Toolkit That Can Save Your Life! 沒有美術人手怎麼辦？這件 unity 法寶救你一命〉
