Adding Assets in Unity Games

Adding Assets in your Unity game

If you’re coding games in Unity, then it is a good idea to visit the Unity Asset Store. Unity Assets are high quality game assets – sprites, animations, and 3D models – used in Unity Game Development. These ready-to-use assets reduce the most time-consuming process of game-development – asset creation. Moreover, the sprite sheet too is available in-built. So,adding assets in your unity game saves time and helps you prototype and build high-quality games.

In this post, we shall see the sequence of steps to add these assets in your Unity game.

  2. Then search for any Assets
  3. Choose the free asset you want to use
  4. Login
  5. Click on “Add to my Assets”
  6. Click on the “Open in Unity” editor as shown below
