Are you aspiring to set your foot on the gaming world with an amazing 3D game? Do you want to build your game with the robust platform of Unity? Well, you already know how much important it is to find a reputed Unity game development company for building your game. If you are going through different bids and trying to find ways to choose the right company, you may feel a little confused about the priority of considerations or about where to start your scrutiny.

Here we are going to shortlist some of the key considerations to make your job easier for finding the ideal one among the multitude of companies working with Unity game development.

1. Make your priorities straight

You probably have a clear idea of a 3D game development project, and you are expecting to make a mark with the gaming experience of your still to come game. But that is just the beginning. You need to set our priorities first of all. Do you want to unleash your 3D game on several platforms including mobile, web, and consoles? Have you given a thought to the budget of the game development and post-development marketing? All these considerations should be your priorities.

2. Watch out for the key traits

Based on the kind of 3D game you wish to build you already have an idea about the kind if developers and their respective qualities you need for the said project. The Unity game developer of your choice should have enough experience in similar projects, and he should be reliable, passionate, responsible and communicative. He should have hands on experience in working in a highly collaborative development environment. Developers who have experience in being kart of both small and big teams are likely to have the required communication skills.
One big quality for a game developer that you must look for is the passion for technology and creative excellence. To make sure that your chosen developers possess these qualities check their social media status, read their written blogs and have a look at their portfolios and career graph. They must have a solid programming background and experience in similar game development project will be an added qualification.

3. Know the market

While having a game project in mind along with the kind of budget you should be prepared with, you should also have a clear idea about the gaming audience you are going to target with your new game and the detailed market dynamics. Have a complete analysis of the market with a comparison of different market rates, and a clear idea about how you are going to produce value over price. When you know that a great developer talent deserves a quality package, you never lose him. Do you know many east European countries really have a lot of talented game developers? Well, you should be ready with the price for the deserving developer talent.

4.The cost consideration

You must not forget that though the Unity game engine is relatively cheaper for a company to start, actual development and promotion of the game may involve a significant amount of cost. Apart from the financial cost, a lot of skills, commitment and dedication make a successful game. It is a time-consuming process, and naturally, the development companies take price in consideration to the development time involved. Just remember one thing. Any great piece of work that would deliver you millions in future cannot come cheap. So, always have a realistic budget in mind keeping the development challenges in mind.

5. On time delivery

The creation of a 3D game is just the beginning of a long process involving pre-launch and post-launch marketing, promotions and continuous upgradation. The game market is tremendously competitive, and no game idea is safe from being reproduced. Naturally, making a project successful also depends upon how faster a development process and time to market you can ensure. In this respect, on-time delivery of the finished game is a crucial consideration. Only when the game release date is finalised, the company can turn on to a robust pre-launch campaign to create buzz around the new game. Missing the milestones and deadlines is a sheer unprofessional act which only shows the incompetence of the developers. So, for your upcoming game project make sure it does not happen.

6. Don’t forget about the portfolio

If you are going to hire some developers from a Unity game development company, it is quite obvious that you would like to look at their portfolio to peruse their credentials and competence. But while focusing on the budget, development cost and associated negotiations with a development company, many of us just forget to have a deeper look at the developer portfolios.

Did they have solid programming experience with other projects? Did they have experience in building similar games? Did the developer achieve some professional acclamation or reward for any of his works developed so far? All these considerations are important. Three things developer portfolios should clearly mention such as the platform-specific programming skills and expertise, the years of experience and the projects completed and the work rate.

It’s a wrap, guys!

Finally, you cannot always judge a development company simply on the merit of its completed or successful projects. This is particularly true in case of a high revenue and creatively demanding niche like games. Another company can hire game developers after building a hugely successful game. So, looking at individual developer portfolio along with studying the credentials of the development firm is crucial.

      I'm trying to add some details like grass, rocks, trees, etc. to my little procedurally-generated planet. The meshes for the terrain are created from a spherified cube which is split in chunks (chunked LOD).
      To do this I've wrote a geometry shader that takes a mesh as input and uses its vertex positions as locations where the patches of grass will be placed (as textured quads).
      For an infinite flat world (not spherical) I'd use the terrain mesh as input to the geometry shader, but I've found that this won't work well on a sphere, since the vertex density is not homogeneous across the surface.
      So the main question would be: How to create a point cloud for each terrain chunk whose points were equally distributed across the chunk?
      Note: I've seen some examples where these points are calculated from intersecting a massive rain of totally random perpendicular rays from above... but I found this solution overkill, to say the least.
      Another related question would be: Is there something better/faster than the geometry shader approach, maybe using compute shaders and instancing?

      Hello all,
       
      I would like to start off with thanking you all for this community. Without fora like these to assist people the already hard journey to making an own game would be exponentially more difficult. Next I would like to apologize for the long post, in advance...
      I am contemplating making a game. There, now that's out of the way, maybe some further details might be handy.
      I am not some youngster (no offence) with dreams of breaking into the industry, I am 38, have a full-time job, a wife, kid and dog so I think I am not even considered indie? However I recently found myself with additional time on my hands and decided I would try my hand at making a game.Why? Well mostly because I would like to contribute something, also because I think I have a project worth making (and of course some extra income wouldn't hurt either to be honest). The first thing I realized was, I have absolutely no relevant skill or experience. Hmm; ok, never mind, we can overcome that, right?
      I have spent a few months "researching",meaning looking at YouTube channels, reading articles and fora. Needless to say, I am more confused now than when I started. I also bought some courses (Blender, Unity, C#) and set out to make my ideas more concrete.
      I quickly discovered, I am definitely not an artist... So I decided, though I do plan to continue learning the art side eventually, I would focus on the design and development phase first. The idea being, if it takes me a year or more solely learning stuff and taking courses without actually working on my game, I would become demoralized and the risk of quitting would increase.
      So I thought I would:
      1: Keep following the courses Unity and C# while starting on the actual game development as the courses and my knowledge progress.
      2: Acquire some artwork to help me get a connection with the game and main character, and have something to helm keep me motivated. (I already did some contacting and realized this will not be cheap...). Also try to have the main character model so I can use it to start testing the initial character and game mechanics. For this I have my first concrete question. I already learned that outsourcing this will easily run up in the high hundreds or thousands of dollars... (lowest offer so far being 220 USD) I am therefore playing with the idea of purchasing https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/3d/animations/medieval-animations-mega-pack-12141 with the intention of then have an artist alter and/or add to the animations (it is for a Roman character so some shield animations are not going to work the same way.). This way I could start  with the basic character mechanics. Is this a good idea, waste of money,...? Any suggestions? I then have a related but separate question. Is it a good idea to buy Playmaker (or some other similar software I haven't yet heard of like RPGAIO), and using this for initial build, then changing/adding code as the need arises?
      3.Get a playable initial level ready as a rough demo and then starting to look for artist for level design and character/prop creation.
      ...
       
      I would really appreciate some input from more experienced people, and especially answers to my questions. Of course any advice is extremely welcome.
