Inside the Vault: a Contest with Unity and Substance

Vincent Gault on February 14 2019 | Community, Contest, Game

The Substance team is proud to announce that we partnered with our friends over at Unity for a modeling - texturing - assembling contest. This one is for the warriors among you!

The idea is simple: the Unity Icons project created Buried Memories world, in which you are led to a vault door. Your mission is to imagine what could be inside that vault.

Check out this video:

Create a scene showcasing multiple environment pieces, objects, or characters, all textured with Substance, and upload your work to the Unity Asset Store. Share your ideas about what lies inside the vault - there’s no limit to what may exist.

The contest begins today, and ends on March 28 at 11:59pm PST.

Share your WIPs: #InsideTheVaultContest

How to participate:
