Unity web player games suck!

Ok guys, i know Unity brings 3D to online gaming, next level of technology etc.
But what about games that were made lately using this technology?
(Im talking about 3,5-4 stars+)
Ok they are nice, and made in 3D, but the way the game is made, (mechanisms, balance, innovations, relpay value etc etc etc) are worth 1 star, or even less compared to what normal games can offer (For example compare unity Tower Defences with normal ones, with the same star rating).

Unity games devs!
Please, **** the graphics,
Dont let the new (great) technology remain a pretty curiosity instead of real games.

(Btw, there are a few exceptions from what im saying. Its just the overall trend im observing)

This made me wonder what 3+ rating Unity games you have been playing. Just because you don’t like 3D games doesn’t mean other people have the same opinion as you. Ratings depend on the community, people overthrows the game if they don’t like it. Simple as that.

Seriously its not about 3D.
its about the rest, about everything except the graphics.

Not to look far, Drillboid with 3,64 stars with front page.

Oh yes, I must agree that is a shit game… But every unity game I have played so far has horrible controls; and feature the graphics more than the gameplay.

Sir or Ma’am, please watch the language as there are many minors on this forum. This forum isn’t for ranting, and I’d suggest you don’t do so. If people do not like a game, then they rate it a low star rating. There really isn’t any point to ranting on about a game you don’t like, simply rate it the stars you think it deserves. I understand your point, but please don’t rant like this.

On another note, graphics can play an important part of a game, but I’d say they all work together. As an example, how many people do you think would buy a game…like “Call of Duty:Black Ops”, for example. If the game hadn’t been released in HD, or had graphics similar to Halo? The game may increase, or decrease in sales. It all depends on the story, graphics, and contorls together.

Actually, millions still would have bought it. They pay for the title, not the game quality; which is why a new Call of Duty is released almost yearly.

And don’t bitch about language. Throwing a hissy-fit about it wont do anything.

However, there isn’t Parental advisory over this whole forum, is there? I’d prefer not to get into a debate with you, but users must watch their language on here.

Not particularly they mustn’t. Actually, I’m pretty sure Kong can put up anything non-pornographic; and there isn’t a thing you could do about it, warning or no.

It’s 13+. It’s not meant to be kept squeaky-clean.

Um, no. People under 13 are not allowed to have accounts and therefore, can’t use the forums.

And swear words aren’t really a big ### deal.

Keep in mind that most of the Unity games on Kongregate were entirely designed and created in the 2 months that the contest has been running. It’s not necessarily that we don’t want interesting mechanics, but it’s not easy to get as much content as we’d like into 3D game in such a short amount of time.

Yes, it’s called reading the “Terms of Service” when you register. But I agree, users must watch their language

How does Unity work, graphics-wise? A basic primitive-building system? If so; a game could easily be built in a half hour; though the programing and animation would, I assume, still take a while.

I’m not implying “Users must NOT swear at all times, as it is illegal and you can be sent to prison”, either. I’m saying that users shouldn’t swear, as there is no point to it, and it isn’t the nicest of ways to express your thoughts. I’m not 10 years and, and I’m not going to whine to a moderator, but I think that people shouldn’t swear on a public forum.

It’s not a primitive-building system, no. It’s programming in either JavaScript or C#. Having worked with Flash, I’d say it’s very similar, but you have a third dimension, more complicated physics, 3D modelling, texturing and animating to deal with.

My point is proven. There’s a game called “Don’t Shit Your Pants” too, and it even has a badge.

Guys seriously we started with the unity games not the F**ckin parental advisory…

Good point with that 2 month contest @TerminalPlan.
I Could have been to quick to judge them as an overall.

Unity web player games suck!

I think Unity has a great potential to produce gOLDen games, but the Developers are so obsessed with graphics that it’s like they’re wearing a blindfOLD and can’t see that gameplay is very important, they’re like “behOLD my 3D graphics power, buahahaha!”.
It really saddens me, but who is going to be bOLD enough to try something new when simply using pretty graphics works nowadays? I guess the Developers are already sOLD to Capitalism, and now all of its problems are going to increase tenfOLD with the amount of money involved in the contest being so big. :/


Note: I don’t think my posts makes much sense… but that’s OLD NEWS.

TerminalPlantain pretty much hit the nail on the head. A vast majority of the Unity games up right now were designed in under 2 months. A large portion were people picking up Unity for the first time for no other reason than they wanted to make something specifically to enter into the contest. Even experienced designers can only do so much with 2 months.

With that said, I, personally, feel there are some amazing Unity games out right now that actually deserve HIGHER ratings than they currently have. No, I am not talking about my own (I am, actually, very thrilled by how well it has done. Thanks, to everyone who played. My apologies to everyone who hit Alt + F4).

I will admit that there are a decent amount whose only good point are the graphics; ones which seemed to completely glance over game-play and focus solely on eye candy. That happens on any platform, with any tool, on pretty much every form of “art”, though. Not just Unity.

Give us time. I think there are enough “good” Unity games to show excellent game-play can be designed, and obviously there are enough showing off great graphics. Only a matter of time before the two start merging more often than not.

I loved your game, Chaotic. :D

Only wish it were longer.

You want a good one, you make it.

For what it’s worth, canpbubs and I spent a long time polishing the gameplay for Drillboid, just as much as we did the graphics. Some people really seem to enjoy the gameplay, too, so I guess it’s just not for some. That’s fine by us, just let us know what you’d like to see improved!
