Developing a computer game in Unity

Among the existing frameworks, Unity is one of the most popular because it is a cross-platform development environment that allows you to easily port an application or game to other platforms, from Android and iOS to personal computers and game consoles. Creating games with Unity does not require deep knowledge of programming and working with code, because this engine takes a component-oriented approach.

The convenient and intuitive interface of the working environment, coupled with the wide functionality of the graphic editor, allows you to draw maps, place three-dimensional models, triggers, characters in virtual space. And right there, without leaving the checkout, test all this and see how the game works. Unity game development is ideal for both developers and customers, because for the former, this engine is incredibly convenient, and for the latter, it is profitable due to the low cost of creating games against the background of other frameworks.

The cost of developing Unity games and applications

The question about the cost of developing mobile games on Unity is simple, but it is impossible to answer it in absentia, since four factors affect the formation of prices:

  • technical complexity of the project implementation;
  • scale of work;
  • the number of involved programmers, designers, artists, etc .;
  • terms.

The production process begins with analytics and briefing – the discussion of the general concept gives an approximate understanding of what the customer wants and in which direction the developers need to move. At the stage of drawing up the technical assignment, we will already understand the scale of the project and how difficult it will be to achieve the set goal. This means we will make an estimate for all key expenses.

  1. Analytics and documentation. These formalities are not interesting to anyone, but without them, chaos can arise. We are for order – this helps to achieve the best result.
  2. Prototyping. At this stage, many small prototypes of individual parts of the future game are created, which are then combined into a single whole and form the gameplay. The point is to weed out non-working, crooked or too expensive ideas in advance so as not to waste the client’s money in the void.
  3. Pre-production. A single slice prototype is created to show how the entire game will play and feel roughly. A vertical cut is usually understood as one or two ready-made levels with working mechanics. Thanks to this slice, you can make edits in a timely manner and change something, improve.
  4. Production. At this stage, all specialists involved in the development have a clear task and a vision of the ultimate goal. The main work is carried out here, and large-scale changes are no longer possible, with rare exceptions.
  5. Development of the server and client parts (Back End and Front End).
  6. Testing, polishing of the finished product.
  7. Release.

These are the fundamental stages of developing games in Unity, which allow you to take a product from the idea and concept stage to a full release.

The Unity development advantage

The main advantages of the engine:

  1. Multiplatform – an application or game can be easily ported from Android to iOS or vice versa, released on a PC, consoles or any other platform.
  2. The presence of a huge library of ready-made assets and plugins significantly speeds up the development of applications in Unity and reduces costs. You can save on creating levels, character models, or even AI behavior patterns – there are free templates and templates for this.
  3. Realistic physics of interaction of solids, advanced ragdoll, competent collisions of objects and tools for creating complex animations.
  4. To work with the engine, knowledge of the C # language is sufficient, which, again, reduces the cost of expensive programmers.
  5. Modular system of engine components, with the help of which the construction of game objects takes place. This simplifies development and reduces the likelihood of critical optimization issues or bugs.

Unity application development is popular for all of the above reasons. If you have a great idea that could turn out to be profitable, contact FlexReality digital agency. We will make an appointment, discuss all the nuances, draw up a technical specification and turn the idea into a specific product!
