Diving into some of the learning resources we’ve got for you this week, below you can find some insights into shader development, Unity’s Visual Effect Graph, and recreating some combat inspired by Final Fantasy XV.

Community Project Showcase
Falcon Age recently launched on PS4 and PSVR. In Falcon Age you and your falcon friend hunt, gather, and fight colonizers in VR. They’ve also realised a fantastic write-up about what went into creating the bird of prey, which you can read here. Or, you can check out some of the insights they shared with us regarding development on Twitter.
The team behind Last Epoch recently announced a beta trailer and release date for their upcoming ARPG. You can expect loot, getting lost in dungeon diving, character customization and most likely, more loot. Learn more about the game on their website, and make sure to give your peers a follow over on their social media!
This is one of the weirdest monsters you will encounter in DARQ. We had a lot of fun implementing the sounds recorded by multi-talented @steveblu (who's a composer who plays a ton of instruments!). All the processing was done by @CujoSound #unity3d #madewithunity #gamedev pic.twitter.com/llXwf2nVRa

Unfold Games shows us just how creepy their project, DARQ, can get with the addition of some eerily beautiful audio.
New Math Attack FX. It needs a lot of adjustments especially for timings and more animations. But the priority here is to make it look & feel good without the cinematic cam to make it better when added back.#CognitioTerra #madewithunity #gamedev #indiedev #indiegames pic.twitter.com/iqFmbdtnpF

We’ve been following Lez Tusi develop Cognitio Terra for a while know, and it’s been fantastic to watch it grow and evolve over the past year or so. Above is a quick highlight on the newest piece they have shared with us!
Last but not least, we noticed that a lot of VFX Artists were mentioning us and #madewithunity in their #vfxfriday posts. Thank you! We’ve picked out a few that showcase some beautiful work, and you can find more in the hashtag. If you’re working on something with our Visual Effect Graph, share it with us and your peers!
