This template allows you to quickly build a game where you control a spaceship that flies along a guided path to shoot at enemies.
The package is compatible with all render pipelines in general as it has no dependencies to rendering, but there is no dedicated pipeline switching process for the materials included in the package.
You would need to use the material updater of your render pipeline to swap out the used materials on the models.
Create a Rail Shooter spaceship game in minutes!
Learning to create a new game in Unity can be fun, but it can also be daunting to start from scratch without any guidance at all.
Procedural Worlds Game Templates help you by providing a solid basis for the core mechanics of your next game. Drag and drop a few prefabs in your scene, and you get the first playable level. String multiple scenes together to create a complete game with multiple levels. From there you can exchange art assets and further expand on the template to make the game your own.
