ex2D, our almighty 2D sprite tool set for Unity, is finally released on Unity AssetStore!
Please open your Unity, hit CMD+9 and grab a copy for your Unity mobile game!
The price is $25. Yes that’s right. I don’t see any other great Unity extension with this type of price tag. So this is definitely a great deal.
We set the price low for the following reasons:
- We wish everyone can afford it and use it to develop great looking 2D games with ease.
- We build the tool for our own Unity game development, so we can’t count too much for the cost of the development of ex2D.
- We only provide essential features in the package. Other powerful features in the road map like Tile map editor and Skeleton animation editor will be add-on and charged separately.
There will be improvements for the ex2D core package in the future for sure, but the goal would be polish the tool to perfection. You can expect small handy features like material swap for sprite special effect, or shear transform of sprite etc. But like I said, we will not add new editors to the tool set.
I really think this is the best way for Unity users to implement 2D workflow into their project. If a tool set becomes too large, then every time a user want one of the features, he has to import the whole package to the project. More importantly, we believe that it’s the best practice if a tool set only does certain specific work. So you can easily combine different tools or write your own solution to keep your game creative and unique.
Enough said, please go get ex2D on Unity AssetStore if you need an easy and elegant solution for your sprite heavy game, and start enjoying
I will end the post with some screenshots showing off the strength of ex2D:
