Mention: 30 games in 30 days, by Grids

Go SA! The local game dev scene is heating up, and the latest comes from GameLogic - the company behind the super impressive project which speaks volumes for itself - they made 30 games in 30 days, and they’re not even a game development company.


GameLogic made Grids, a “plugin for Unity Game Engine that allows you to rapidly implement games built on various types of grids”. Which means in plainspeak: it makes grid systems for your games in Unity super easily.

And to prove that, they made a game a day for 30 days. There are a good variety of games of all types, from puzzles to real time stuff to 3D to simulations, and they were all made in a day - this ain’t no trick photography or smoke and mirrors, this is real, honest-to-god prototyping goodness! And none of it would have been possible without the coding prowess of fellow gamemaker Eduard Beukes who powered all 30 of these beasts.

My favourites of the lot:


Day 30 - it’s so pretty! And moves so well!


Day 28 - It’s also so pretty! And so much motion sickness! 😀


Day 25 - I really like the thought behind it, thought-provoking.


Day 15 - I loved the way the hex grid was a thematically perfect fit for a paraglider going down. Cool concept.


Check out Grids if you’re devving in Unity, and check out their 30 games for inspiration!
