Chris accepted the challenge and he appeared on Hot Pepper Gaming. Watch him a VERY hot pepper and then try to explain Son of Nor. It's painful, it's...

It's so easy to make a good game when you have unity pro, most of the feastures they list here are just, like the oclusion culling data, unity features and they get credit for it ... I would only congratulate this games if they made this from scrath.

PS: Also the profiler they use to see performance is a unity feature and the problem with the collosions they have is simply fixed by checking a option box in unity called Convex. Anyway they get credit for things they don't make.

I can say that it's not that easy. There is a lot programming that goes into doing a lot of this. I have made a few games in Unity, and other web applications. There are a lot of great features in Unity, but it is very bare bones when it comes to features. Examine UDK vs Unity and you'll see a huge difference. And when your talking about a Physics based game it gets even more complicated!

It is convenient but I also think that something must be considered - even though many people have Unity Pro and probably will be able to get Unity Pro- they aren't making a game that looks like "Son of Nor" or is in any way "Son of Nor".

Beyond the game engine used, there is the game's concept, mechanics and the actual implementation (even of said 'one click solutions')- these three are personally what I appreciate most about what they are doing.

I also praise them for choosing a game engine that allows them to produce this kind of quality ('easily'). :)

Thanks A-Frique. I think if there was a button labelled "create awesome game that sells in millions" in Unity there would be many more cool games out there and a lot of incredibly rich people.

Fact is, there aren't. inXile uses Unity for Wasteland 2 and they have a big team working on that game. It doesn't write itself. We're now working on this game for about 2 years. And we have about 15 people working on it. Many part-time, some full-time. Multiply that by 2 years and I think it's safe to say that "some" work has been put into this game other than just use "Pro" features that make everything look good automatically.

I'd like to compare it to a carpenter. I think everybody can wield a hammer, use nails, a chisel and other tools. But it takes somebody who "knows" how to use them to make a beautiful table that is symmetric, good looking, nice texture and use of materials, stands solidly on the ground and is not aslope. So just possessing a chisel doesn't make us great game devs. There's no "create great table" button on a chisel.

But I agree, it's yet another level creating even the tools yourself! I have great respect for people who are willing to create everything from scratch. Great job. But this is neither a warranty for a great game.

I understand all that, I work with Unity alot myself but just look at some of their weekly or whatever is reports they do what? 1-3 models and then they just say: "The coder team worked on many bugs and improved performance" ...

I lose respect for this guys because they just picked an awesome engine and made a "game" (WIP) with it and they get tons of credit while there are here in IndieDB tons of people that make games from scrath that may look simplier but took much much more hours to make than this.
