Ah, Unity 3d. Nice choice!

Making a game in Unity is a challenging, but a rewarding experience, and it can be done at the minimal cost of free, but you would need to fulfill some basic prerequisites first. let’s first talk about the system. What kind of system required for Unity3D game development.

To make a Game in Unity 3D, you would need:

  1. OS: Windows 7 SP1+, 8, 10, 64-bit versions only; macOS 10.11+ Server versions of Windows & OS X are not tested.
  2. CPU: SSE2 instruction set support.
  3. GPU: Graphics card with DX10 (shader model 4.0) capabilities.


The rest mostly depends on the complexity of your projects.

Additional platform development requirements

  • iOS: Mac computer running minimum macOS 10.12.6 and Xcode 9.0 or higher.
  • Android: Android SDK and Java Development Kit (JDK); IL2CPP scripting backend requires Android NDK.
  • Universal Windows Platform: Windows 10 (64-bit), Visual Studio 2015 with C++ Tools component or later and Windows 10 SDK

This all information you can also found on the Unity3D official website. And also keep in mind that this information is only regarding development unity3d game.

A Good Programming Background: Yes. Programming is unavoidable if you seriously plan to make games in Unity3D. And as Unity supports JavaScript or C# (Choose C#), you should at least know their basics and concepts of Object oriented programming. If you belongs from the technical background like mobile application development or web application development, then here we can easily decide that which language is good for us to developing game. For me I have choose C#, because I belongs from mobile application development, but if you are web application developer then you should use javascript. Else people use any one of them.

you people must have knowledge of Unity Asset Store, Unity Forums and Stack Overflow. These are definitely not optional. These will be the places you will find yourself frequenting a lot if you are going to make a game. You will run into troubles, you will need that new gun for your player. this is when you will come to these sites. Prior knowledge about these will be a great asset for you.

You should love what you are doing, right? Otherwise, why are you even doing it?

So, this was it. These were some things you need to have before starting Unity.

But, I would like to let you know that if you are really interested in making games, don’t let this list kill your dreams.

You can make a game by any means. You don’t need a good PC to make games. Heck, Previously I was using my 7 year old laptop to churn out some (buggy) games. And who cares if you haven’t programmed before? Just get a good book and an IDE or follow a youtube tutorial series, they will teach you all you need to know. And get familiar with Unity and its stores and forums. It’s not that hard.

Just keep on going and get your first game cracking. It’s good to see that you are taking precautions and collecting some information before beginning. But remember, most people get stuck at the initial stage only. Don’t think too much and just download and use Unity today.

You won’t regret it, when you see your first game on the screen, and it is something you have made. And that something, is damn fabulous.

Good luck 🙂 Happy Coding
